Mosaic Monday ~ A Baby Smile

Look who learned to smile at her Mom-Mom...
if you listen real close you'll hear her tiny little coos.
We had a delightful conversation!
Babies are bits of stardust blown from the hand of God.
Lucky the woman who knows the pangs of birth for she has held a star.

God's Masterpiece

From graceful lilies pure and white,
God fashioned lovely skin,
Forgetmenots he chose for eyes,
Then formed your baby chin.
He took a tulip bright and red --
'Twas one that did not fade;
A softer, sweeter little mouth
Before was never made.
Another flower next He used --
A rosebud, pink and fair;
Touched it to your dimpled cheeks

And bade it blossom there.
Then with His magic fingers picked
Two morning glories white;
Curled and shaped your little ears,
Soon they were fastened tight.
That crowning bit of golden down
Will soon become your hair;
He gathered pollen from the flowers,
And sprinkled it with care.
For dainty little fingers dear
And precious, tiny toes,
He used slender daisy frills;
A snowdrop made your nose.

This world and all within it
He created here for man;
But Baby was "God's Masterpiece"
Since time and life began!

(Poem by Dora Dinsmore)

These are the best days of your life! Better than when your own children are little as you now realize the brevity of it all. ENJOY that precious one~~~~

What a beautiful child. Loving Grammie. My youngest grandchild will be 1 on Thursday. Little precious face is just adorable. What a blessing. Beautiful poem too.

Iforgot to ask. Have you had word on your child in Haiti? I do hope she is alive and you have heard. The orphanage we are praying about has not been heard from as of now or the Pastor either.

I think as Grandmom's holding an adoring wee one, we get just a glimmer of what God must feel when He gazes upon His children!
