    I watch my babies
    sleeping,
    precious like
    newborn cherubs’ slumber,
    fresh
    from the Master’s Hand

    my babies,
    from my womb
    my fruit…
    my own

    on loan

    I smile at my babies
    when they don’t
    see me,

    knowing that
    no one
    but God
    loves them
    more than I

    hoping by my
    example
    they grow
    to know
    Him
    personally

    I pray for my babies
    when they can
    hear me

    pleading on their
    behalf, that they
    begin to
    understand
    and know
    God’s love is
    truly all they
    need

    I hope my babies
    develop
    first love
    relationships
    with our Father
    through His Son,
    by The Spirit

    for
    they shall possess
    the Master key,
    unlocking the
    door to life
    everlasting...

    on this narrow
    road to victory

    i saw

    u standing in the hallway,
    in the darkness, hands folded
    at your breasts, feeling your heart
    beating quickly, in silent prayer

    i saw u standing, anointing the
    doorposts of your babies so the angel
    of death would pass over them, that
    their breath would not return to God
    this night

    i saw you kneeling in the hallway,
    weary from the day of labor
    hands lifted, thankful
    hands lifted, prayerful
    hands lifted, careful

    to give Him the praise
    and begging for more strength
    and His help to raise

    His children


    thank you for this peace, Alyce...hoping to hear you speaking poetry again, soon :)

    it hit me

    very hard the other night ~ my children are just with me for a little while...made me a little sad and much afraid; hoping I do all I can to usher them into independence...because they're just on loan...

    thank you for feeling me...and CELA....hit a sustuh! :)

    Blessed piece, yes we do love our babies,

    This was a beautiful heartfelt prayer, causes me to pause just thinking of this whole concept...deeply flowed and felt.
