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!
