Because Life can only be lived a moment at a time.

Mr. Pettit and I welcomed our fourth grandchild into the family almost two weeks ago. These are the thoughts that passed through my mind as I held each of these precious little ones for the first time…

Fresh from God,
Welcomed to a place
Strange to you.
Everything now
Is new.

Mama’s voice—
Familiar song
Soft and true,
Now floating through air
To you.

Dark to light.
Flowers and faces,
Sunshine, too.
Creation revealed
To you.

Learn to dance
By holding God’s Hands.
Let Him do
His marvelous work
In you.

Then everything will be new,
Always,
For you.
