Monday Memories: God’s Miracle

Published in April, 2019, this faith-based poem remains the most viewed post on Big Sky Buckeye.  The theme of family and adoption hits close to home, and this poem honors a family very dear to my wife and I.  Their story has been a true and rewarding journey of faith with our Lord.

God always manages an astonishing plan

He stretches His hands across the land

 

 

He spends six days building His creation

Then, He smiles at His brilliant sensation

 

Again and again, God shows He is in charge

His Holy presence looms, caring and large

 

His Book of Life satisfies with infinite pages

He sends His Son as a sacrifice, for the ages

 

When our Savior rises on Easter morn

God proving, His love will always adorn

 

 

A woman grows up, dreaming of more

She longs to be a wife with love to soar

 

She looks forward to being a mother

God would have it this way, no other

 

A devoted man with his son, will now deploy

Her sacred marriage brings to her much joy

 

She becomes a wife and mother in one day

Wow!  God’s plan brings much delight today

 

 

Alas, something is missing in a life filled with peace

An unfilled yearning to bear a child, the final piece

 

Through much prayer, faithful words to offer

This couple places their trust with the Father

 

A young girl appears, needing a loving place

They become her foster parents, with haste

 

Over time, this girl discovers love, with such vastness

Her home permeates with love, without any sadness

 

 

But wait—the story carries on for a year

Now adoption lies ahead, without fear

 

Father, mother, son, and now a daughter

God’s love touches all, thicker than water

 

Praise God, our heavenly Father this day

Praise His miracles that astound and say

 

God always manages an astonishing plan

He stretches His hands across the land
