Poetry To Make You Think...

Guest Author - Danielle Hollister

Poetry To Make You Think...



As you prepare for your child's BIG Christmas morning, making every effort to see that Santa Claus has tried to fulfill his letter explaining how good he was all year and listing all the toys, games, and extra special things he wants this year, you should also take time to consider how precious your child actually is to you.
Below are three anonymous poems that speak volumes about the true value of your children.


FROM GOD WITH LOVE

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.

Heavenly Kids

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.

LITTLE EYES UPON YOU

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.

THE BLANK PAGE

A child's life is a blank page.

What will the first words be?

Shut up!
Get out of my sight.
Go play.
Don't touch!
You, that child's parent, write upon

These words teach fear.
They register unwantedness.
They say, "I don't love you."

Let your words teach gentleness and beauty.
Let them supply high moral principles,
courage to meet life's disappointments, pride in a job well done.

Use words that reflect your love:

Beautiful, son!
You did a great job.
Don't worry--we'll clean it up together.
I'm so proud of you!
When your child is grown, you will look at him

and see the words you wrote on that blank page.

Write words you will be proud of!
