What Heaven Sees in You

"Sent to this earth
You were saved through the ages for this day and time.
Child of great worth,
Child of promise, daughter of the Divine.
Pure and holy in a little white dress
You were held in a circle and you were blessed.
And the Father looked down
And the angels surrounded that place.
They knew the truth, all that you could do
And you will too
If you have eyes to see what heaven sees in you."




"Dressed in white once more
Making promises to follow in God's way.
So much lies in store
For the little girl who enters at the gate.
Pure and holy in a little white dress
You were led into the water and you were blessed.
And the Father looks down
And the angels surrounded that place.
They know the truth, all that you could do
And you do too
If you have eyes to see what heaven sees in you."

"Do you understand who you are
Part of the Father lives in you.
And if you continue on this path
Every promise God has given will come true."

"Heaven on earth
In the house of God so much fills your heart and mind.
Woman of great worth
Woman of promise, daughter of the Divine.
Pure and holy in a long white dress.
You promise forever and you are blessed.
And the Father looks down
And the angles surround that place.
They know the truth, all that you can do,
And you do too
Cause you have eyes to see what heaven sees in you."

 I can't believe her baptism day has come and gone already!  It was a beautiful day and I'm such a proud mommy thinking of my sweet girl, the good decisions she is making and the life she is building for herself.
Miss Olivia - We love you so much!  We are so grateful to have you and so blessed to be your parents!  We hope you will always remember that you are a daughter of God and that He loves you and is always with you.

I love it. That is one of my favorite songs. I'm sad I wasn't able to be there! But what great pictures of her. :)

Of course you would quote a song :) Fits so perfectly. She is so big now I can't believe she is 8 and baptized. Love the pictures of her with her scriptures and I'm glad it was a beautiful day.

What a darling post. I can't believe our little girls who played in the sandbox back at Midwestern are old enough to get baptized! :)
