Making a decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ~ Elizabeth Stone
You finally made it, then, my baby,
So pleased to have you with me,
Now revealed safely in my arms,
Finally disembarked from the mother ship.
I’ve so much to tell you,
So many things to show you,
Friends to introduce, relatives to meet,
Books to read, songs to sing,
And to share the secret of God’s love for you.
But first things first.
And just now, my heart wells with joy
And brims with love
For the gift of you,
Sweet child of God.
Seed of my life,
For you, I will give my all,
And much more besides.
God bless you, child,
As angels sing praises for your life,
I give thanks to you, our Creator God.
