Little One

With a few suggestions from Daniel, I wrote this poem for Baby Braelyn. I have never done anything like this before...and was pretty nervous to post it for everyone to see. Daniel, however, encouraged me to put it on our blog...so here it goes. Hope you enjoy!

"Little One"
Little one, little one
Do not be afraid
You are safe where you are
For you are God-made
Little one, little one
I can't wait to meet
Each moment that passes
Brings hope so sweet
Little one, little one
Moving so free
I sit ever so still
Just waiting for thee
Little one, little one
My heart skips a beat
Each moment I feel
The gentle kick of your feet
Little one, little one
Hands so small
Little do you know, that in them you hold
The hearts of us all!

Oh, Rachel! You are so talented! What a great poem to your sweet baby girl. I literally had tears in my eyes. Oh, what a great feeling! I love that you put it into this perspective. It's so sweet! I can't wait to feel these things some day. Thanks so much for letting God's love shine through you!!
