Hank and Jolene are expecting a baby!

"You saw me before I was born.

Every day of my life was recorded in Your book.

Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed."
Psalm 139:16

To Wenona, a Mommy-in-Waiting

Mothers give the greatest gift,that we on earth can receive.

A life to live and love to give;the day she does conceive.

She carries me close, inside her.Her heartbeat I do hear.

Her voice sounds like Angels singing-The first sweet sound I hear.

Her touch is; Oh so gentle.So secure I feel inside.

Only wondering how much longer,in her womb I must abide.

Then the day comes,when I no longer need to stay.

I only want to be outside-in her arms I wish to lay.

I twist I turn,I push I shove,I open my eyes and look above.

So scared I feel, I just want to hide,then her voice I hear,so close by my side.

Then I see her-The most Beautiful sight I've seen,

reaching out for me- her eyes full of tears,yet still a happy gleam.

I snuggle and cuddle,as close as I can.

As she kisses me gently,and then takes me by my little hand.

I love her instantly,as much as my small heart can bare.

Bundled up in her arms;I grasp a strand of her soft hair.

I wrap it in my hand, So, so very tight

wanting to make sure that she is with me throughout the night.

I settle in quickly,and slowly drift off to sleep.

As my mother carefully watches over me,and counts each toe on my feet.

I see her in my dreams,I feel her in my heart.

And I know this feeling will be here, in life,even if we are apart.

So Mother, when you think of me,know that this is true;

When I think of Undying Love,Mother I am thinking of YOU!
