Today we celebrate World Down syndrome Day. It is a day recognized by the United Nations. It is a day meant to celebrate! And celebrate we do. As I was thinking about World Down syndrome Day, I thought, what do I want my boys to know today and every day? This song by Christy Nockels is one I sing to my kids all the time. It is truth. Thankful that God made my boys exactly as He wanted to. He made no mistakes when forming their toes, hair color, personality, or giving them an extra chromosome. And you know what? As much potential and greatness as I see in my kids- He sees so much more! Praying today my boys know just how special they are, not just because they have Down syndrome, but because the Creator of the Universe made them in His image, and loves them more than I could even try to love them. 

Happy World Down syndrome day, friends!

 

If you ever wonder

If you’re made for more

Yes, you are

More than this world

Can afford you or tell you

You're capable of

And there's a mystery inside you

So let define you

And you can move mountains because

You have what it takes

Your heart's a river wide

Not by power, not by might

But the spirit of God

He's living inside you

And you have all you need

And you need only to believe

That when Jesus fights for you

Nothing can stop you or stand in your way

'Cause you have what it takes

If you ever wonder

If you're gonna make it

You will

Even though you'll feel like

You're going under with pressures

That all seem so real

And so remember that your heart

Was made for surrender

And when you let go, you will know

You have what it takes

'Cause Your heart's a river wide

Not by power, not by might

But the spirit of God

He's living inside you

And you have all you need

And you need only to believe

That when Jesus fights for you

Nothing can stop you or stand in your way

'Cause you have what it takes

You're a flame burning in the night

Like a big bright city on a hill

And you're a force to be reckoned with

Like a midnight train running wild

And you need only to be still and know

The one who made you, the one who raised you

Who gives your heart, it's fire...

You have what it takes

Your heart's a river wide

Not by power, not by might

But the spirit of God

He's living inside you

And you have all you need

You need only to believe

That when Jesus fights for you

Nothing can stop you or stand in your way

You have what it takes

You have what it takes, baby
