In Our Hands


Will this baby
grow up surrounded
by love or war,
compassion or greed?
Will he learn kindness
or hate by his surroundings?
Will fear be his normality,
or will he reach for the stars?

We hold this child’s life
in our hands. What we do,
or do not do will be a
deciding factor. He is
our tomorrow.

    Reblogged this on catnipoflife and commented:
    While just yesterday those of us of Christian faith celebrated the miracle of the virgin birth, today we all fall witness to the miracle of birth at any given moment somewhere across our planet as a new life begins. Within the original post by Pat Cegan is one of the most wonderful baby videos you’ll ever see!

    I do not know of anything more precious than the miracle of birth…priceless! Within each new life dwells hope for tomorrow’s tomorrows. Reblogging on catnipoflife.
