Anna's Song

Sometimes the sweetest worship comes from our children. In their innocence they are uninhibited by legalism, peer pressure, or religious standards. They simply look at God for who He says He is and accepts that as the truth of the matter. They do not question His greatness, His power, His authority, His workmanship. To them He is the I AM! They do not wonder how He came to be, or why He is - they just accept that HE IS! They do not look around to see who is watching, they do not wonder what others may think, they do not hold back - - they come boldly. The trust completely, and find complete joy in His presence, unchecked communion with God himself. And I believe He delights in them. O, that for a moment we could go back - or better yet move forward - past the legalism, the standards the religion that binds us, past our perception of what others might think, back to the basics of unrestrained, pure worship before the Lord.

Anna sang this song around our home for weeks in May 2005 (she would have been 4 years old at the time). She called it Up to God. Finally one day I wrote the words down in my bible:

God's looking down at me
I Sing praises up to God
God is my heart song, is in my soul
God sent his son,
He died on the cross
So I sing praises up to God
If you look up to God
You can sing praises
Whatever song he puts in your heart
I sing praises up to God
I sing praises in my heart
I sing praises up to God!

BROKEN BOW, OKLAHOMA..FALL 2009

By: Anna Grace Riddle - 8 years old My family and me always go to Broken Bow. We always have fun. We like to ride on the train and we get to see deer. We like to play in the water. It is so much fun to have a family that wants to do so much stuff with you. We also have fun when we go to Bro Jimmy's cabin because we sometimes see deer. We like to go to the restaraunt at the park because if you put a fry on the rail a squirel or big bird will come eat it. In the museum is really, really cool. We like to play in the old mail house. There is a creek no to far from it, sometimes we walk down there and play in it and find diamond rocks. One time when we went there I was picking up rocks following my daddy and I found this black thing that looked like a rock in a tree stump and I almost picked it up. I ran to my daddy to show him what it was. He threw a rock at it and it jumped. It was a snake. The end. By Anna

Our trip to Jacksonville Seminary and Caddo Lake

It was fun to ride in the canoe and splash water on eachother. To drive around and get ice cream. I liked going to the seminary then to Caddo Lake and spend time with family. Thank you God for giving me the time with my family, bless your name. It was fun to be in the same water with gators and my family. I can't wait to go on the steamboat this summer. I liked the hodge podge boat house. Thank you God for all your creation. By Chase Ryan -6years old
