I will never forget you….

Reading the Word

Can a woman forget her nursing child,

And have no compassion on the son of her womb?

Even these may forget, but I will not forget you.

 

Isaiah 49:15

Reflecting on the Word

Asleep, until your delicate cry cracks open an eyelid of the night. It’s feeding time, for both of us. I stroke your warm head, nurse your drowsy body. And you, tiny hand on my breast, you nourish my soul. Although day is dawning somewhere across the globe, to me the whole world is you and me, the dim lamp in the corner, and the moon.

A Time to Be Borm

 

Responding to the Word

Lord, as I hold her in my arms and kiss her tiny fingers

I wonder if anyone in all the world

Has ever been as happy as I am now!

She’s like a tiny poem

Short but beautiful—

And several years from now she’ll be a story.

Lord, I’m trusting you to write the plot.

Then at last she’ll be a book-lengh novel

Translated into many languages

I am confident of this, Lord

For you are both Author and Publisher.
