My niece celebrated her fourth birthday a couple days ago, and my sister-in-law reposted a poem she wrote while she was pregnant with her.

I hope you are, like I was, blessed by her beautiful words and insight into the gift and true blessing children are.

Enjoy!

“Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward.”   Psalm 127:3

Kicks and Flutters

.

Kick and flutter

Angel of mine

Precious reminders

of you inside

.

A tiny gift

But gift not small

I prayed you’d come

God heard my call

.

Such a treasure

God’s gift to me

Oh Little One

How can it be?

.

God looked down

And saw your place

In my arms

In my embrace

.

So kick and flutter

Little One

Keep reminding me

Of your life that’s begun

.

You’ll fit so well

Here in my arms

If the Lord wills it

It shall be done

.

In Your timing

Oh, Father, God

You’ve given us joy

in this Little One

.
