As I look at my children while they sleep, I know in my heart they are only here because God let me borrow them until he decides to bring them back home to him. All children are gifts from God, they should be cherished as just that...

This poem originally was published in Poems on Life - Family Poems

Children Are A Gift From God
God sent me three packages
That needed special care
"Take care of these tiny gifts
For they are very rare."

"Watch over them with all your love
And let them feel your touch
Take care of their every need
For you are needed very much."

"These gifts will grow up very fast
As you soon will see
Love them with all your heart
And let them be what they will be."

"When these gifts have fully grown
Look at Heaven up above
Know they exist because of God
And all his precious love."

    This poem really touched me. probably differently than most. My brother, his 8 months pregnant wife, and 3 sons were recently in a car accident with a drunk driver. My brother (24), his wife (23), oldest son (6) and unborn baby (due 12-11-06) were killed. Spared were their 2 sons, 4 years and 1 year. These 2 babies that were spared are truly a gift from God that we are extremely thankful.
