SMALL MIRACLE – By Shar MacLaren
Gavin Mark Tisdel
March 3, 2008
Have you ever seen a miracle? Well, I did just today.
A precious little baby boy, just right in every way.
I took him in my hungry arms and simply stared in awe,
And searched from head to toe to find not even one small flaw.
Ten perfect little fingers, ten perfect little toes,
Two rosy cheeks, a splendid chin, the cutest little nose.
A crown of downy fawn-like hair, the smoothest, creamy skin,
And eyes that crinkle tightly shut to keep the darkness in.
Two little hands to reach and grasp, two feet to kick and sprawl,
Two ears to hear, two eyes to see, two legs with which to crawl.
A thousand veins to carry blood, a heart to pump it through,
Two lungs to breathe, 300 bones, and everything brand new.
Two families, one little room, all squeezed in four by four
To see this precious brand new babe we instantly adore.
If ever love could blossom more, or hearts could grow in size,
Then that is what I saw today -- before my very eyes.
“I will praise you, Lord, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are your works…” Psalm 139: 14a
