Tiny Blessings (Lord Give Me a Heart of Flesh)

Today I am blessed
by tiny hands
and delicate feet.
I can't help but wait
for eyes to open from sleep,
squinting into the newness
of life.

I find myself humming hymns
dear to my heart,
songs I sang
to his mother
when she was his size.

Thank you Lord
for the gifts you bring
into the world,
to be cared for
by loving parents,
grandparents,
aunts and uncles.
Thank you for gifting C.J.
to our family.
