My Eternal Focus

For my daughter at her wedding...
O’ Sweet little girl of mine
A day you entered my space and time
A sun rose and a moon glowed
As my heart converted to your abode
Looking into your darling little face
I knew God arranged just the time and space
As from His hands you were gently whirled
Into this foreign, mysterious world
At home plate with a catcher’s mitt
I stood there ready for His targeted pitch
It was then and there my priorities changed
As my new focus became clear and plain
To love and protect this sweet little girl
That God kindly placed inside my world
And so I loved you, nurtured and cared
Would defend at all costs if anyone dared
So today I stand here proud and humbled
As I recall, yes, I sometimes fumbled
Raising a child requires patience and love
And faithful rapport with our Father above
Added wisdom from my own loving mother:
When you fall, you get up, you dust off and recover
I am now pleased with the work we’ve done
My prayer… a part of me will live on
To make a difference in this troublesome world
Bring focus to her own little boy or girl
The two of you, together in this world of chaos
Seek identity with the only One who can truly save us
Quench your spiritual peace-seeking thirst
Through Him who sent to us His First
Don’t sit on a precipice of "what you've heard"
Grasp authenticity in his divine word
Today we give our baby girl’s hand
To a kind, gentle and loving man
As a part of me I give to this man
I want all to know this and understand…
Whether still on this jagged earth I roam
Or have taken flight to my heavenly home
My baby girl, of Godly Seed
Is my eternal focus…whenever, however, wherever… the need.

|This is precious, Janice, for it speaks of your love for your precious daughter. I evokes a lot of emotion for me as I remember how I felt when I handed my first daughter over to her young husband-to-be. You have labored diligently and joyfully to prepare her; the future is in her hands, her husband's and God's.

|Janice Beaty Springs, if your words and dedication do not inspire every parent with the call to devotion our children require, and our God insists they must have, they will never understand parenting -- a wonderful heartfelt expression of being a parent and a God loving Christian -- peace and love my dear friend -- Jon Michael|
