I've blogged about Jerry Jacoby before . . . um, right here. He's amazing and we have him speaking at three of our camps this summer, among a couple of other fantastic speakers. If you're a part of any organization that serves children, I highly recommend him. He does character education in schools and ministers at churches and camps all over the country (and even internationally, on occasion).
Last year, Jerry gave us one of his CDs and Jack has listened to it tirelessly. And when it's Jack's turn to choose a song, I don't really even need to ask him which one he'd like, because he almost always starts with "Heroes of the Bible." In that song, there are speaking parts, that go something like this:
"Oh, Moses?" - "Yes, Lord?"
"You're going to do great things for me, Moses."
"Who me, Lord?" - "Yes you, Moses."
"But Lord, I'm only a man." - "I know you're only a man, I made you remember?"
"But Lord, I don't know how." - "That's ok, I know how, and you can trust in me."
Then it goes back to the chorus. He does this with Queen Esther, and then, lastly with a child (who, on the CD, happens to be his grandson).
Last week, right before chapel he asked Jack to help him with it, which was no problem. Jack had heard the song so many times, that he already had it memorized. I so wish I could have been there, but his babysitter, Kylie, caught it on video. I'm so grateful that she did! It's a little shaky because she was holding Ben at the same time, but I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
