The Greatest Gift
From one of my favorite blogs, Ragamuffin Soul:Â Carlos Whittaker, father, worship leader, and video editor tells the tale…
Sometimes you just need to point and shootâ€¦
If for no other reason than to capture those moments that fly by so fast you didnâ€™t even know they happened.
I do this all the time.
2 Sundays ago, during a day with no purpose but just being togetherâ€¦
I just hit record.
You can capture moments, smiles, hopes, and dreams that will last you forever.
Most of this footage was in the â€œtrash binâ€ of iPhoto.
While I was editing this to music Sohaila said that her heart was telling her words.
My little emo girl.
I asked her what her heart was telling herâ€¦
She scribbled thisâ€¦
The greatest gift
Cannot be unwrapped
It cannot be bought
It cannot be sold
It can be felt
It can be seen
It can be heard
Because the greatest gift
Is each other
After I picked up my jaw off the groundâ€¦
I had her and her sister Seanna read it over the movie.
I cut and pasted each of them saying different linesâ€¦
The result brought me to tears.
Probably because itâ€™s my familyâ€¦
Or probably because itâ€™s true.
Cause itâ€™s in that footage that I almost throw awayâ€¦
That my 8 year old found this treasure.
