Thank you Jesus for the gift of our children!

I think it is important to have some reminders about what a gift God gives to us when He gives us our children. I like these poems because I think they help us to keep in mind how much we should love our little ones, and the impact that we have on their lives. It can be easy to get caught up in the day-to-day struggle of things that “HAVE” to get done, but we need to remember to take the time to nurture. We must not forget their little hearts and minds.



Children are a blessing sent from God above
For us to care and nurture and most of all to love.

God calls us to be parents and gives us all the tools
And when we feel like giving up, our strength He will renew.

Children are a gift from God that He so freely lends
To make it through the childhood years, on Him we must depend.

He must have a presence, you see it must take three
The parents, child and Christ at the center to be a family.
From childhood days to a child full grown
Their joys and hurts are a parent’s own.

Times of joy and laughter and those times of tears
The times spent raising a child are surely the best of years.

There comes that time in life when a child will leave the nest
We must send them off with love and a prayer and leave to God the rest.

We have shared the Word of God, we’ve taught them right from wrong
Now it’s time to let them go and let them write their song.

The faith instilled, the examples lived, and the lessons taught
All gifts that we’ve given our child, which will never be forgotten.
There are many paths a child can take, right or wrong will remain unknown
But rest assured that in the end, they all lead back to home.

There are little eyes upon you
and they’re watching night and day.
There are little ears that quickly
take in every word you say.

There are little hands all eager
to do anything you do;
And a little boy who’s dreaming
of the day he’ll be like you.

You’re the little fellow’s idol,
you’re the wisest of the wise.
In his little mind about you
no suspicions ever rise.

He believes in you devoutly,
holds all you say and do;
He will say and do, in your way
when he’s grown up just like you.

There’s a wide-eyed little fellow
who believes you’re always right;
and his eyes are always opened,
and he watches day and night.

You are setting an example
every day in all you do;
For the little boy who’s waiting
to grow up to be like you.

I hope my children look back on today,
And see a Mother who had time to play!

Children grow up while you’re not looking,
There’ll be years ahead for cleaning and cooking,

So quiet now, cobwebs; dust go to sleep.
I’m rocking my baby, and babies don’t keep.

If you read my blog it is no secret that I highly value and love children and babies. They are bundles of joy, beautiful gifts from our Heavenly Father. All of them are blessings, meant to be nurtured and welcomed with all of our hearts. Here are some thoughts about our precious little ones to enjoy!


A baby is a blessing-

It’s a joy to watch it grow,

To see it’s little toothless smile

And count each tiny toe.

A baby is a blessing,

For it’s new life is bright and new;

Just by being here it gives

Our lives new purpose, too.

A baby is a blessing,

For when faith or hope is gone,

A baby clearly signifies

God’s wish that life go on.

—by Jill Wolf


When I approach a child, he inspires in me two sentiments:

tenderness for what he is, and respect for what he may become.

—Louis Pasteur


Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see.

—John W. Whitehead
