How many times do we miss blessings
because they are not packaged as we expected?
290. Malli's blue eyes

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever. Psalm 23:6

I love this picture of Malli. Her happy, cheerful, content, peaceful spirit ... and those blue eyes. She is such a blessing! I remember a few months before she was born I heard the song Blessed by Elton John on the radio. At that time I had no idea about the joy this child would bring me. I heard the song on the radio today and just had to post the words here.

Great lyrics.

Hey you, you're a child in my head
You haven't walked yet
Your first words have yet to be said
But I swear you'll be blessed
I know you're still just a dream
Your eyes might be green
Or the bluest that I've ever seen
Anyway you'll be blessed
And you, you'll be blessed
You'll have the best
I promise you that
I'll pick a star from the sky
Pull your name from a hat
I promise you that,
promise you that,
promise you that
You'll be blessed
I need you before I'm too old
To have and to hold
To walk with you
and watch you grow
And know that you're blessed
Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
