Singing A New Song

14 years ago today, God released His very own songbird into this world. When I look into her ocean deep eyes, I sometimes feel like I can see straight through to heaven. She’s a beautiful image bearer of the One who made her.

28 - Version 2PINIT

When God puts a song in Hallie’s heart, she writes it. And every now and then, a few of us get to listen. It feels like listening to something straight out of heaven…so authentic and pure. She’s had a few months of guitar lessons and has spent some time with our friend and neighbor, who just so happens to be this incredibly talented musician {amazing story for another time}. But other than that, she’s just a girl with a guitar doing what God made her to do.

193 - Version 2PINIT

I haven’t shared any of her songs in years, but you can’t hide the gifts of God forever. They’re meant to be shared so that more of heaven’s glory can be seen here on earth. Hallie wrote this song for my 40th and sang it at our neighbor’s house last weekend, but today, on her 14th birthday, I think God wants to sing these very words back to her.

My sweet Hallie girl, I hope you hear the angels sing on your day!


You were made with the breath of love.


Happy 14th birthday to my brave and beautiful songbird!

P.S. This morning, God gave me the idea of looking at every 2:4 in The Bible {since 2.4 is the day she was born}. Some of the verses weren’t exactly birthday blessings, but I loved this words in Song of Solomon 2:4. His banner over you is love.
