Poetry: My daughter

January 11, 2011

Her eyes are a royal blue, her hair is dark brown

She smiles, coos and makes sweet sounds

Only two months old

Yet so much love pours from her soul

Teaching me how I am a mess

and about life, and faith, and selflessness

She is my daughter

    Beautiful Samantha! Even in my stage of parenthood with a ‘tween daughter and 4th grade son, I am finding that they are “teaching me how I am a mess”…more to the point, God uses them to teach me how I am a mess!

    Thanks Andy. Yep, that’s pretty much it. I definitely have seen more of the fact that I am a sinner in need of grace every day.

    Thanks for your thoughts!

    This is my precious daughter and I’m her beautiful mom who is in need of God’s healing, forgiving, loving grace daily!

    See how her eyes are a royal blue and her hair is dark brown.

    Just look how my treasured daughter smiles, coos, makes sweet sounds, teaches and inspires me to be more trusting and selfless!

    How can so much love pour forth from such a life-ennobling, God-blessed childwho is only two months old?
