“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.” James 1:17

In “Dance Me, Daddy,” singer and songwriter Cindy Morgan tells a story of a little girl growing up.

When the little girl was young, she played games with her daddy.  She would sing a song to him:

“Dance Me, Daddy

Dance me around

Don’t ever let my feet touch the ground

There’s nothing better than being your girl

If I am your princess, then you are the king of the world”

Sometimes her daddy would kneel by her bed while she was sleeping and pray that her King in heaven would watch over her every minute of the day.

She grows up and goes to a different place and meets a boy and falls in love.  They get married.  The final picture is of her with her mom and dad, her husband and her baby.

I really liked the pictures and I really liked the song in “Dance Me, Daddy” by Cindy Morgan.
