A Gift of God

God is so loving and kind. He wants all to know that he cares so much for them. As a prayer person, God had me pray for this beautiful teacher who had been trying for years and years to have a baby.
I would lift her name daily every morning to the Lord. The poem below did happen and Donna and I give God all the glory for her family.

While praying and walking a photo is shown.
A Mom holding a little girl and twin boys in a red wagon pose.

A picture, a picture, but only in the mind’s eye
given by the Lord


A year or two go by and the picture is proclaimed over and over again.
Surely the children are on their way to becoming reality.

Time marches on and then with God’s calling forth the twins march from the picture in real life.
Time marches on and a baby girl comes forth and smiles at the mother

The picture in quiet repose
Is reality now
No longer silent but
abound with child like noises

A picture, a picture to encourage a childless one
A promise fulfilled by the Lord

Dedicated to Donna, Keith, Kameron, Keegan, and Kaityln

About rko777

I am a novice writer and painter who loves to be creative. I love singing but can't sing without a hymnal, except for children's songs. I love to make up my own songs and love the old hymns. I love to garden and got that love from my Mom and Dad who taught be everything I know from planting to harvesting to canning. I'm happy gardening, walking with my pug, JD Sir Winston Churchill, painting, and crafting. I love to spend Saturday's sitting in my rocker going through a bible study. I love working with elementary school aged children and seeing them use their creative gifts. I have taught Sunday school for a number of years and taught in the public schools for 18 years. I might say I'm retired but I spend most of my time subbing and enjoy it immensely. The kids spark my own creativeness.

  1. Another story of one of the spiritual gifts at work. Seems like the Word of Knowledge.

    It also reminds us be diligent in using our gifts for His Body.

  2. Oh Rena this is so special a testimony! What a mighty God we serve! Who can be without His mercy and grace? Who can move a finger or an eyelash without Him? Who can march into the melee of commotion of humanity that surrounds us with its problems and challenges and opposition to sanity? Who can face it without GOD? Who wants to??
    This testimony of God’s compassion touches me greatly and the mercy of God, new every morning, is manifested in this story of the miracle of answered prayer, petition and intercession.
    Who could ever doubt what God can do?
    This song tells the story:

    IT IS NO SECRET
    “IT IS NO SECRET WHAT GOD CAN DO
    WHAT HE’S DONE FOR OTHERS, HE’LL DO FOR YOU
    WITH ARMS WIDE OPEN, HE’LL PARDON YOU
    IT IS NO SECRET WHAT GOD CAN DO!!
    AMEN!!
