Child of Laughter

Child of Laughter
The Gift of Family #11

Dearest child of laughter
With that smile, bright as dawn
You brighten all our days
When your giggle catches on

Your life’s just beginning
And potential’s yet unseen
We watch for your future
Which for now is but a dream

May you grow in God’s love
Strong of body, heart, and mind
A son of His promise
And treasure of His design

Sister

Sister
The Gift of Family #10

A friend to share the latest chat
On our visits rare but welcome
To laugh together, trade a smile
Enjoying the comforts of home

A sidekick in adventuring
Up a tower and down rivers
In camping out beneath the stars
And riding Shivering Timbers

In all, you bless this family
Sharing your gifts of mind and art
Drawn ever closer over time
Bound as a sister of the heart

To a Young Voyager

To a Young Voyager
The Gift of Family #9

The voyages of a dreamer
Flights that carry you near and far
Your scope of imagination
Draws close the distant star

The realm of possibilities
Where your visions and knowledge meet
The land where all the future’s built
Native soil to your feet

The prayers of a young believer
Will keep you fixed upon His will
While your dreams and fancies aid you
Your purpose to fulfill

Reflected Light

Reflected Light
The Gift of Family #8

 

Reflected in your smiling face
The light of heaven’s joyful heart
Sharing hope and laughter
When the road seems long and dark

Reflected in your quiet strength
The light of heaven’s guiding hand
Shaping mind and spirit
In your growing little men

Reflected in your caring soul
The light of heaven’s healing love
Giving help and comfort
In the haven of your home
