Since this is Abbie's favorite song, I wanted to give her the opportunity to share what it means to her.
"I love this song because just hearing the words helps me to calm down. Like when I hear that 'he loves me', that helps me to know that He did it all for me. I also like her voice. It is really pretty.'
It is true that this song calms her down. Abbie has always had a fiercely independent spirit, which has proven to be both good and and not so good. We know that God has blessed her with this independence and passion for some wise purposes. My job, as her mother, is not to squelch this independence, but to help her learn how God speaks to her through the Holy Ghost. If she can learn, know, and understand how God communicates with her, then she will be more fully able to understand what God needs her to do with this passion and independence that she has.
I know that this song is one of the ways that Heavenly Father has communicated with her and helped her to feel of the great love that He has for her.
Maybe it will do the same for you. :)
