Michaela's Mom

My husband wrote me a beautiful Mother's Day poem that I'd like to share. I cried when he spoke about the child we lost and smiled at the gift of Michaela that we received not long after. I can see the Holy Spirit's light in this poem:

For my beautiful wife on this Mother's Day
May the Lord bless and keep you each morning I pray

God if it be your will for us to have a little one
We will understand if it be a daughter or son

One came about and we know this is true
But we soon found out...that one was for You

Our hearts were troubled and had no idea why
You took our first babe with you into the sky

Not so long after, our minds still in a whirl
You told my lovely wife of a perfect little girl

You even planted the name in Mary's head
Michaela Rose Nicewarner you flawlessly said

Then it came to pass and she did give birth
A sweet baby girl - more than words are worth

I praise you and thank you for my perfect family
Now we know this is how you wanted it to be

O how I love the woman you placed at my side
You told me she is the best one for me to confide

And so it is finished and our lives are complete
Michaela's mom and my wife, she can never be beat!

Spirit inspired! I read the love in every line! After the loss of our first child God gave me a word that Michaela would be born. He even named her. Praise be to God forever!

 Happy Mother's Day to all!


  1. Mary,
    God bless your husband's beautiful heart.
    Happy Mother's day!

  2. Happy Mother's Day Mary.

    I didn't realise it was Mother's Day in the USA. We've had ours last month in the UK. I suppose it's because time-wise we're a few hours before the US! Or is it perhaps so that we could buy all the presents before the prices go up?

    May God bless you and your family always.

  3. Wow, Mary! What a lovely poem! You've got a good one there! Happy Mother's Day!

  4. What a sweet and dear husband you have. God is so generous to give us the right mate. He reminds me of how much my Dad loved my Mom. She was the whole world to him.

  5. So beautiful. Happy Mother's Day!
