A Blessing Bestowed - Shanzi

Curtain rises
A new life is born

Family smiling
Birth’s miracle

Hungry children
Each will eat less
Willing sacrifice

    And as I have seen God will provide more. Let's hope Mit doesn't get to make those decisions.

    The first stanza gives hope and the last is an enigma to be solved. A thoughtful verse Carolyn. Nice to be in touch again!

    A little sadness to this one in that children are starving over the world but there is joy in a new one added to the family...Reads like winning material to me..Sara
