Heaven's Delight

When God made you my little
Grandson, he told His Angels to
gather around.  This little baby I have
made is heavens delight, which brought many
smiles to their beautiful glowing faces.
Then the Lord said, every once in a while,
I make someone very special and this little guy you
see before you, is one of the special ones.
He shall bring happiness and so many smiles
to everyone he meets.   This child will have a
mighty heart as big as can be and will touch
many people lives.  I now send him to the earth
so his family can love and cherish this little
guy, who will be a most tender and beautiful

Written 6-7-11
For my precious Grandson
Brandon James Birkenstock
on his first birthday
June 10, 2011
