Sometimes God uses children to show us His magnificence. Today, as I listened to a little boy talk of his teacher -the bestest in the world- and his friends -also the bestest- I was reminded of the work God does on a daily basis. It seemed the only thing to do was to write about this beautiful child and God’s perfect work.
Our Lovely Boy
His chocolate eyes are sparkling bright.
His brown skin glows with health.
His smile can brighten any room;
I bask in it, myself.
He came to us an angry soul,
Surrounded by his rage.
We sheltered him and showered him
With love, applied each day.
And slowly, oh so slowly
His soul turned to the light.
The goodness of a gentle love
Shone strongly through his night.
Today I watched his face alight
With happiness and hope.
I heard him talk of joyous days.
I smiled as he spoke.
Was this the frightened, angry child
We met this time last year?
I do not see his anger now
And where is all that fear?
It’s all of God; His love shone bright
And forced away the pain.
That hurting, hopeless little boy
Will never be the same.
His world is new; he knows he’s loved.
He’s learning everyday
That God is good and though we hurt,
We needn’t stay that way.
So here’s to you, our precious boy.
Your life brings hope anew.
And when I see that lovely smile,
I can’t help smiling too.
Isaiah 54:13 – All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children.
