Praise Gee The Lord!

16Apr08

It has been my adventure for the past few weeks to observe the social lives of four small children. My two, Canaan (almost 4) and Will (almost 2) and their friends Moira (4) and Camden almost (3).

Today on our ride home Moira was trying to teach Canaan the latest song she learned at church. Some of you might know the song from children’s church. It goes “Hallelu Hallelu Hallelu Hallelujah – Praise Ye the Lord!”

Canaan and Moira were in the far backseat of the van. Moira was bobbing her head and singing, “Hallelu Hallelu Hallelu Hallelu Lu, Praise Gee the Lord!” over and over and over and over again.
Moira asked Canaan, “Do you want to sing with me? It goes Hallelu Hallelu Hallelu Hallelu Lu, Praise Gee the Lord!”

Moira started the song and it was Canaan’s job to finish.

Moira began, “Hallelu Hallelu Hallelu Hallelu LU!”

Canaan sang, “Praise Jesus the Lord!”

Moira stopped and started shaking her head. “No, Canaan. It’s Praise GEE the Lord!”

Canaan tried again. “Praise GEEsus the Lord!

“Ugh! No Canaan!” Moira said. “Praise Gee the Lord!”Moira started again. “Hallelu Hallelu Hallelu Hallelu LU!”

Canaan was now determined to get it right. She shouted, “Praise GEE!sus the Lord!”

“No Canaan!” Moira shouts. “Not Jesus! It’s Praise GEE the Lord!”

Canaan just looks at her open mouthed for a moment, then turns to her window and sings, “Hey Hey You You! I don’t like your girlfriend!”

I about died.
