When you think of a child, do you think ‘miracle’?
Each child is precious from the moment of their birth; many would say since conception, which I would agree with.
But let’s reflect on that moment when they first exit the womb and enter this world. Nothing short of a miracle, I say, that birth itself. Such a precious moment because a new life is here to begin his or her journey of pilgrimage in this mortal world.
So let a child know that he is precious, a miracle, a heritage of God for us; to be accepted into our life, for us to feed, nurture, guide, protect, provide for, teach, love, and lead out into the world.
Children are a miracle. Treat them with responsibility, wonderment and tenderness, but a firm hand for protection and guidance. May they grow up to be upstanding men and women of God.
