Once Upon a Time

(*Picture is of my son Taylor)


Once Upon a time

God knitted You

together in your mother's womb

and you were a


whose first word was a cry.

Music to the mommy and daddy's ears,

but then the cry that was once music

doesn't like a song at 2 in the morning.

But then smiles return

as you are taken from the crib

and held and fed

until the next cry at 4 am.

Once upon a time

God knitted You

together in your mother's womb.


perfectly crafted,

on purpose and for a purpose

from the moment of your first cry

and every cry after that.

Music to your

Father's Ears

the moment you cry out to


"I cry to God to help me. From His palace He hears my call; my cry brings me right into His presence— a private audience!

and no one can take that away." (Psalm 18:6 The Message)

Because you are

His Child~

even though you are no longer a baby.

As my second "Baby"

is turning a year older today,

tears fill my eyes as I remember that moment when they said

"It's a boy"~

A son for my husband and I.

A brother for his older sister.

I remember holding him for hours &

looking at his little tiny feet and fingers and those eyes.

Once a baby,

yet who is no longer a baby

but who

I share and you share you the same story~

Once Upon a time God knitted~

God crafted

God created

God shaped

each & every one of us in our mother's womb


He will never

leave us or forsake us~

"You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book." (Psalm 56:8)
