No Sweeter Sound


Re-post today. Be sure to come back tomorrow for our weekly Bible Reading Challenge check-in AND we have a fun giveaway planned! So don’t miss it!

“There’s no sweeter sound than to hear your baby say “DA-DA”.”

This was my husband’s facebook status last week. I replied that I thought “MAMA” might be sweeter. We have yet to hear “Mama,” but the dada song has been going all week. I think the little one has him wrapped around that pinky. In fact, she probably did the moment she was born.

One of our other sweet girls, Taylor, hasn’t been able to speak for the last seven years due to her disease of MPS. We have video coverage of her calling Mommy and teasing Daddy. I treasure those tapes so much. She has spent more of her life non-verbal than she did verbalizing. Oh the joy we will have in Heaven when she is made whole and we hear “Mommy” and “Daddy Matt” once more!

If the sound of our children calling our names brings such excitement and happiness, imagine how thrilled our heavenly Father is when we call on His name!

Galatians 4:6 says, “And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.”


To His ears, there is no sweeter sound than His babies asking for Him. His arms are open and He is eagerly anticipating a precious conversation with His dear child.

When was the last time you crawled into those arms and enjoyed His presence?

Why I Love My Husband
Today my friend, Fawn, at the Happy Wives Club is having her first link-up party! So I’ve linked this post up with her awesome, happening place with 5 reasons I love my husband.

1. He writes facebook statuses like the one mentioned above because that’s his heart.

2. His heart is huge and he loves to help people.

3. He loves me without reservation.

4. He’s hot. Really, he is.

5. He gives me so much encouragement to write.

The list could go on, but I’ll stop it for now. 🙂 Be sure to stop by The Happy Wives Club and join in the fun!

  1. I am working through the Bible slowly, probably not in a year. But in college, I had to take both OT and NT classes. In those classes we had to read OT and NT during the quarter (12 weeks). It was quite a challenge

  2. Thanks for sharing! I miss the baby stage of learning to talk. What Greg memories. Also what a wonderful reminder of how heaven will be a perfect place for us to go to one day and be with our loved ones. Blessings

    1. Thanks Nikki! Thanks for the wonderful giveaway today also. 🙂 Blessings to you!

  3. Thanks, Rachel, for posting this awesome list! Love the 4th one :). Isn’t is awesome when you love to write and you’re encouraged so completely by your partner for life? Yeah…it’s pretty fantastic :). Thanks for linking up!

  4. I go to sleep every night between Jesus and Mary in the arms of Our Heavenly Father covered by the Holy Spirit.
    I speak to Our Father all the time, I lean on Him and when I’m down or hurting I cry in His loving arms, I live alone( but, I’m not alone) and He is always there to comfort me, Sometimes I forget, and someone will call or something will happen to remind who is always there for me, ALWAYS. He lovves us so much.

  7. This must be the week of broken blogs. I’ve finally resolved (I hope) several issues with my new site. It is SO frustrating–putting my arm around you tonight, Rachel.

    1. Thanks Friend! I was discouraged last night when I had to go to bed with it broken. That’s never happened. But we got it fixed! Woohoo. 🙂
