~ A Precious Gift ~

God sent the sweetest cherub
He put you in my arms,
I looked into your eyes,
You gave away your charms.
You are such a little treasure,
I can only sit and grin,
For there in your sweet soul,
I see myself within.

For months I had been wondering
What genes I would produce,
As you grew inside of me
What of me break loose.

Would you get my cheeky humor,
Or my funny little toe,
Sweet delight in the many wonders
Or the way I walk, just so.

But you were just unique,
With a little bit of either gender,
You turned out to be yourself,
As the recipe went in the blender.

I loved you before you came,
Long before, I know for sure,
For you are of God, a blessing to us
And that is love's eternal core.

His grace has grown you strong
You are resplendent in His hue,
Glowing with His eternal love;
His life alive in you.

With beauty,
You now journey on
Walking with joy
In the light of the Son,
I trust for you, a safe pathway;
Because my treasure, you know to pray.
