Favored Pearl

Our 4th grandchild arrived recently. I have gotten in the habit of writing a poem as a blessing on these new arrivals. I would like for them to read their poem some day, but even more so I pray that God will bless these children far beyond the blessing I am saying over them, that they may know Him and make Him known.

May God grant His favor
Know soon salvation's plan
Infinite grace savor
Love the Lord deeply, Anne

Seek the heavenly pearl
In Jesus be complete
Love Him best, precious girl
Above all, Marguerite

Beauty in all you do
Prudence each act begin
Persevere and stay true
Pray until answers win

May you stand for God's truth
Much evil may you stem
Clinging to God like Ruth
God your strength, Favored Gem

If in God's Word you trust
No word of His dismiss
His direction your must
All success, Miss Francis
