Taylor Singing on Easter

Yesterday we got a call from our friend Jon, who is the worship leader for our church. He asked if Taylor would be up for singing a little solo at church for Easter. We talked with her, taught her the song, prayed with her and walked her on stage. What joy it brought my heart to see my little girl singing to Jesus on Easter morning. Taylor has had such a sweet, teachable heart towards the Lord. We took some time to go over the meaning of the verses and chorus words she would be singing. I praise God for her and pray that the Lord would only increase her love & knowledge of him.

I also realized, about a few minutes before walking her onto stage, that she had never done anything like this before. Because she's always singing for us at home it feels like she's an old pro. So for our San Francisco friends and others who missed it, here's a little recording compliments of my dad :)

Oh that is so funny! When I got to the part where you said, "For our San Francisco friends", I actually had to read it a couple of times before my brain accepted that you were talking about US. "She couldn't be talking about US, could she? I don't think she knows anyone else here. But she wouldn't write just to us, would she? Would she? Wow! She's talking to US!".

Clearly, I read this late at night, lol! We SO wish we could have seen sweet Taylor in person, but thank you for posting this for her fans everywhere to enjoy. She sounded (and looked!) beautiful. Love that girl.

And now .... COME SEE ME HERE!!! ;)
