I can never get enough of this song.
It’s on the Valley of Vision CD by Sovereign Grace Music.
All the songs on the album are based on old Puritain prayers that you can read in this prayer book, also titled, Valley of Vision.

I have a two year old and a one year old. I can get tired just thinking about it. But mostly I’m tired because they need me from early in the morning until they lay down at night (and often after they lay down).
It’s tempting to make all my decisions based on how much work everything [...]
As we study Proverbs we have this great hope that one greater than Solomon has come. His name is Jesus. (Matthew 12:42)
So where King Lemuel’s mother asked with longing, “A wife of valor, who can find?” Jesus is preparing for himself a bride without spot or wrinkle or blemish. Jesus [...]
I’m new at the whole sewing thing, but I couldn’t resist the idea of trying to make the girls summer skirts for explores and bubble chasing. They remind Eric of pink lemonade.

But, really, I’m the one who stands guilty as I scrub that cup. I’m the one who can’t [...]
The thunder woke up Miriam the other night. Eric went in her room to calm her down and they ended up having quite a theological conversation. Here’s a snippet:
Miriam: Where is Jesus?
Eric: He’s in Heaven.
Miriam: Where’s that?
Eric: We think of it as being [...]
I used to have these romantic notions about inviting people over for Sunday dinner. After all, I reasoned, everyone needs to eat after church, right? It seemed the perfect time to offer hospitality.
Two toddlers later it no longer seems so perfect.
