Jesus Is Coming Back to Stay

Currently one of Dacia Grace's favorite songs to sing is one that I learned in youth group many years ago at Hope Church. Like many other of her favorite songs she can be heard singing this song anywhere at anytime....the grocery store, the library, at church when another song is being sung. But today wellll....

After receiving correction for disobeying Mommy, Dacia Grace was supposed to pray to Jesus and tell Him what she had done wrong and ask Him to forgive her.

"Dear Jesus, I pray that you come back soon so that Mommy will not spank me for disobeying you. Amen!"

Okay, now for the question of the day. How does one keep a straight face after such a prayer as that?

So for those of you who are unfamiliar with the song here are the lyrics

Jesus is coming back to stay
Could be any time of day.
Jesus is coming back to stay
The Holy Spirit told me so.
So praise the Lord our God
Shout hallelujah, Amen....AMEN
So praise the Lord our God
Jesus is comin' again!

So let us shout it from the mountain tops, from the grocery carts, from the newsstands, at the red lights with the abandonment of a 2 1/2 year old....

Jesus is coming back to stay!

What a sweet song, and what a sweet, funny comment from your little girl. It must be such a joy living in your home... you always seem to have a song in your heart and you are sharing it with Dacia Grace!!!

That is so cute. I don't know if I could keep a straight face. I have a hard enough time now when we tell Jaden no and he smiles. Cute and funny but not funny!

So cute! I'm not sure how one would keep a straight face with a prayer like that.

P.S. I wanted to thank you for your comments on my blog some time ago. It has meant a lot to me, and I have reflected back on it several times.
