These are the ramblings of an eclectic and whimsical homeschooling family of eight... a little peek, if you will, inside the daily dawdlings and habits of my active and delightful family seeking to please the Lord in all we do! Hopefully our thoughts, observations, and activities will challenge you, inspire you, tickle you, cheer you, and let you know you are not the only one!

The Newborn Boy

I hold within my arms today,
A priceless bit of mortal clay
Divinely fashioned, and so fair
The angels well may kinship share.

My soul with gratitude is filled,
My heart with mother love is thrilled.
My eyes brim o'er with newborn joy,
While gazing on my cherub boy.

O precious one! Through tears I see,
A mighty task awaiting me.
My happy sky grows overcast,
Life's duties loom, so grand, so vast.

To shield from wrong, to right incline,
This little life now linked to mine-
Divine the gift. Oh may the mould,
A heart of truth and honor hold!

Help me, kind Heaven, to know the way
From out the tangle of each day,
To guide him safe to manhood's prime,
And all the glory shall be Thine.

-M.I. Piatt
