If I am never in your future

IMG_9715

Dear child of mine,

As I hold you today feeling complete

In this life

I hope my hopes and prayers for you will be there in the future

I hope my touch will be strong enough to be part of your memories

I hope today’s hugs will be a comforting memory when your days get lonely

I hope my voice somehow blocks the harsh words of a brutal world

My precious child,

If I am never in your future

I know you will know to lean on the truth of scripture

I know you will know where to take your weary heart

I know you will know who to pour your heart to

Dearest child of mine,

If I am never in your future

I hope you will know the abundant love and Grace

Of the one who beautifully knitted you in a womb

That joyfully carried you in anticipation for many months.

Child of mine,

If I am never in your future

Remember that you are somebody’s child.

~Susan McMillan

    1. Thank you Miss Elizabeth. I hope and pray that I will be by their side in many seasons to come. My heart longs for that very much but yet I try to pour out my heart just in case.😁
