OR the Bible Tells Me So

It's really hard to ask a child to stop singing Jesus Loves Me. I'm afraid it will be a direct, first class ticket to Hell, so I've just been humming it along with Ollie all day.

And I have heard this catchy tune about 346 times today.

I'm sure it has something to do with the fact Ollie is learning it at pre-school. {Not that he didn't know it before, but I think they must've been drilling it into them for some sort of recital/ performance/ water torture for parents .}

Ollie has changed to a new pre-school this fall for several reasons. The main one is that we want both our kiddos to be encouraged to grow in a Christian environment. I understand this isn't what everyone decides, but this was right for our family right now. And so far, with minor transitional adjustments {and only one note home and a separate fence climbing incident} it's going pretty well.

Don't get me wrong, it warms my heart to hear a sweet, {mostly} innocent child sing about Jesus loving them. But his version is hilarious.
He's very certain of all the words- especially the "OR" clause. And he adds his own special flare at the end.
It's too hard to explain... so just listen to a bit of it.

There you have it. Either Jesus loves him, or else the Bible tells him so. So, he's covered either way. And that's just fine by me.

So sweet! Thanks for sharing. Reminds me of when my son was that age in preschool. He learned the Pledge to the Bible and the Pledge to the Christian flag. *I* did not even know these, because I hadn't learned them as a child, but he taught them to me with his endless recitations!

I love that "so" at th end!

I once found Phillip (approximately age 3 at the time) sitting on the kitchen table singing about the Holy Spirit who helped not to pee in his pants.

How sweet is that??? My Kaity asked me tonight what it meant to be baptised and then went on to tell me that she is ready to ask Jesus into her, I am speechless!

I like his creative arrangement of the song with the changing of a phrase to "make it his own." And the changing of the key here and there too.

Too many singers try to impress with a big note finish at the end. I appreciate his stripped down, acoustic, coffee-house-vibe with the understated finish on "sooo."

Yep, he's ready for American Idol. :)

I'm giggling to myself. I remember when Nathaniel learned that song, he sang it for weeks. I miss the O'man. :)
