Those Who Are With Young


My daughter Ashley just found out she is going to have a little girl in a few months. 
She called me to tell me during my orchestra rehearsal because I told her I wanted to be the first to know.
A sudden cell-phone ring
and then the news . . .
I couldn't quit smiling all day.
A little girl. My granddaughter.
I can't wait to hold her.
Every woman who courageously brings a child into the world
slips her hand
into the hand of God

 He shall feed his flock
like a shepherd
and
gently lead
those who are with young . . .

they who wait
he promised
shall renew their strength
run
and not be weary
walk
and not faint
mount up with wings as eagles
and
fly

but first. . .

nine months
waiting
discipleship
yielded will
consecration of self
promises kept

Oh, how special! I'll bet you still have that smile on your face. How wonderful, a new granddaughter to nuzzle in a few months.
