My Sweet Baby Girl

 

 

 

My Sweet Baby Girl

 

My “Sweet Baby Girl”, I can’t wait to meet you

Thinking about all the fun things we will do

From the moment you draw your first little breath

Until I depart this world with my death

 

Your Grammy will sing you sweet lullabies

And rock you to sleep as you close your eyes

I’ll read nursery rhymes with you on my lap

And peek in the crib while you’re taking a nap

 

We’ll play on the floor and make lots of noise

I’ll send you home with annoying, loud toys

I’ll teach you to crawl, to walk, even run

Every time we’re together we’ll have loads of fun

 

You’ll ride in the stroller as we walk down the street

And I’ll show you off to everyone that we meet

We’ll visit the park and climb monkey bars

I’ll push your little swing in our own backyard

 

Watching you take your first little step

Will be the most exciting thing yet

I’ll take lots of pictures and post them for friends

My brag book, chock full, will burst at the ends

 

I’ll watch you dance and enjoy your school plays

Afterward giving you oodles of praise

I’ll support your fundraisers and cheer for your sports

And celebrate all of your good grade reports

 

We’ll bake in the kitchen, getting covered in flour

I’ll take you shopping for hours and hours

We’ll play with dolls and go for bike rides

We’ll explore new places, side-by-side

 

We’ll go to the beach and build castles of sand

And walk the shoreline, your hand in my hand

We’ll have lots of sleepovers with giggles and fun

And crash in the bed when the long day is done

 

I’ll teach you everything that I know

Not only with words but also with show

We’ll talk about God and Jesus, His Son

I’ll share the wonderful things they have done

 

I’ll take you to church, and we’ll sit in the pews

I’ll share with you, the Gospel’s good news

We’ll read the Bible; I’ll teach you to pray

Not only at meals, but all through the day

 

I want you to know how much you are loved

Not only by me, but by God above

He knit you together in your mother’s womb

Perfectly, for improvement, there’s no room

 

He gave you two parents who are the world’s best

Knowing that you’ll certainly put them through tests

But no matter the things that you say or do

You must remember always that we all love you!

 

No matter your strengths, your weakness, your status,

Your behavior, your choices, anything you throw at us,

At any age, you’ll make my head swirl

You’ll always be Grammy’s “Sweet Baby Girl”!

 

I love you already, more than you know

I’ll love you forever, wherever you go

I’ll always love you, any way that it’s stacked

I’ll love you forever, to the moon and back.

 

Written especially for My Sweet Baby Girl–Arriving in May 2018

From your Grammy Sindy Nagel

 

Display My Glory

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. (Psalm 19:1)

All creation displays my glory. I have set my splendor above the heavens. The moon and the stars were placed by my hands. I made man a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. He rules over all I have made; everything is under his feet. The birds of the air, the fish in the sea, the beasts of the field, all flocks and herds are ruled by him. My name is majestic in all the earth! All glory belongs to me. Do not withhold your songs of worship. Sing praises to my name. Delight in the beauty of my creation. Do not keep your adoration to yourselves. Do not keep quiet or the stones will cry out in honor of me. Even the heavens declare my glory and the skies proclaim my good works. Glorify the God of creation. Honor the One who formed you. My beauty is your crown. My glory I placed in your heart. Shine brilliantly like the sun. You are a reflection of me—made in my image, so that all who see you, will see me. Display my glory today! (Inspired by Psalm 8)

The Creation Story

And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.” (Isaiah 6:3)

The mountains are majestic, the rocks cry out in praise.

The earth in all its glory was formed in just six days.

From darkness and void, God said, “Let there be light.”

Day one of His creation, morning turned into night.

He spoke and a separation of waters came to be.

Day two of His creation, the sky divided from the sea.

The water, he gathered it all up into one place.

Dry ground called “land” emerged and filled the empty space.

God looked at all He made and it was good indeed.

Next on the list were plants and trees bearing fruit with seed,

The land produced vegetation all according to its kind.

Day three of His creation was what He had in mind.

In the heavens, He carefully placed the stars, moon, and sun.

Day four of His creation, the heavenly bodies were done.

Great fishes of the deep blue sea and birds up in the air,

Day five of His creation, the finned and winged did appear.

Living creatures great and small according to their kind,

God formed the dust into a man: body, soul, and mind.

The woman formed from man’s rib was His crowned jewel.

Over all He had created, God gave the man to rule.

In the image of God, He created woman and man.

Day six of His creation, He finished his beautiful plan.

In six days, the world was created full of God’s glory.

On the seventh day He rested, and that’s the creation story.
