*Heaven's Very Special Child*

I don't know if this has already been posted in here or not? But I thought I'd share this poem... It's beautiful!!


Heaven's Very Special Child

A meeting was held quite far from Earth!
"It's time again for another birth.
Said the Angels to the LORD above,
This Special Child will need much love.

His progress may be very slow,
Accomplishments he may not show.
And he'll require extra care
From the folks he meets down there.

He may not run or laugh or play,
His thoughts may seem quite far away,
In many ways he won't adapt,
And he'll be known as handicapped.

So let's be careful where he's sent,
We want his life to be content.
Please LORD, find the parents who
Will do a special job for you.

They will not realize right away
The leading role they're asked to play,
But with this child sent from above
Comes stronger faith and richer love.

And soon they'll know the privilege given
In caring for their gift from Heaven.
Their precious charge, so meek and mild,

by Edna Massionilla

What an awesome reminder of how much God truts us with when He gives us our special kids! In no way are His gifts punishments (like many view them) but they are TOTALLY PRECIOUS GIFTS!!

Thank You for posting
