Children are Gods Gift (The Broccoli Song)

Posted: 12/12/2014 in My Psalms

My children inspired this song when they were very young and I was a student at International Bible College.  If memory serves me correctly, this is the first song I ever wrote.  My kids affectionately refer to it as the Broccoli Song to this very day.  I have experienced it through their lives and, now, I’m  reliving it through the lives of my grandchildren…seven with one on the way.  Life is good! (c:]  It’s simple and quaint and outside of my family, only a handful of people have ever heard it.  I pray it brings a smile and provokes some pleasant thoughts about the children in your life.  Don’t wait to make memories.  Good memories make good medicine

…Peace and Blessings…

Children are Gods Gift  (The Broccoli Song)

Sugar and spice, things that are nice…puppy dog tails, bullfrogs and snails…

this is a mixture for love.

Kisses on skinned knees…”No broccoli, please!”

Children are God’s gift from above…Children are God’s gift from above.

 Sweet memories are a grown-up’s best friend when pressures in life are all around.

And, now is the time to build memories…let’s not let our children down.

Bicycles and skates…school plays and first dates…Day by day time passes on…

and soon we’ll wonder where they all have gone.

But every boy and girl has their place in this world…

So let’s train them in the way they should go…

Let’s train them in the way they should go.

Sweet memories are a grown-up’s best friend when pressures in life are all around.

And, now is the time to build memories…let’s not let our children down.

Sugar and spice, things that are nice…puppy dog tails, bullfrogs and snails.

This is a mixture for love.  Children are God’s gift from above.
