A Baby Blessingway

Oh little feet where will you go?

We are praying for you before we know your name. We are dreaming about you and for you in that way that women of wisdom and hope do so well. We are praying for your mother's safety and comfort and strength.

I was abandoned at birth. I have never had the privilege of looking into my mothers eyes. I hope that on the day of your birth you will look deeply into the eyes of the one that gives birth and you will find strength deep in those eyes all the days of your precious life. How blessed are you!

Oh precious little one. My prayer for you is that you will grow from this day on with the sense of the blessings poured upon you. That you will ever know your true identity: The Beloved Child of God.

What anointing is poured upon you with these blessings and wise words of women who share this journey with the one who gives you life.

Your first breath will speak the name Yahweh as you gasp to breathe it all in! Oh where will your feet take you? What difference will the touch of your hand make?

You are wondrously made by a generous God and gifted to a gracious and gentle Mother and a blessing to a community of faith.

May your life be blessed with laughter and wonder and the fullness of our God.
