The Look On My Child's Face
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

The Look On My Child’s Face…

Just yesterday I noticed a look of

love on my child’s face.

This happened in a most “ordinary place.”

It was in our home-a place

by God’s own design.

I felt God speaking to my heart

this particular time.

I didn’t take any time to

stop and realize,

The look of love and innocence

in my child’s eyes.

Am I being the kind of Dad

God wants me to be?”

Am I being an example of Christ

for my child to see?”

Have I been demonstrating my

God-given ability,

teaching my kids God’s love,

and responsibility?

May a Christ-like life in my kids

be clearly seen and understood,

As one day they will

grow into adulthood.

I hope that one day my

Children will say:

I want to be like my Dad-

every single day!”

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
