Snuggling into Grace

A Moment of grace,
my grandchild snuggling up against my shoulder,
two weeks old,
seeking security
in a world new to his senses.

My mind is separated
from every conversation in the room,
the chatter of life
that will move on tomorrow
and the day after.
My thoughts,
focusing on his breath against my neck.

For this moment
and the moments that follow,
I am a grandfather...
and little else matters...
when we allow the Lord's grace
to enfold us.
