Did you hear? I was cheering clear across the entire country!
Here is one of my favorite poems to celebrate my new grand baby,
Day Old Child
My day old child lay in my arms
With my lips against his ear.
I whispered strongly, “How I wish,
I wish that you could hear;
I’ve a hundred wonderful things to say,”
A tiny cough and a nod–
“Hurry hurry hurry and grow
So I can tell you about God.”
My day old baby’s mouth was still
And my words only tickled his ear,
But a kind of light passed through his eyes
and I saw this thought appear.
‘How I wish I had a voice and words
I’ve a hundred things to say
Before I forget I’d tell you of God
I left Him yesterday.’
(Carol Lynn Pearson)
