The new father held his baby daughter
gently within his hands.
His gaze never left her face;
he focused intently upon her,
not even looking up when I entered the room.

I dared not disturb this holy scene,
this reminder of how
tenderly God looks at
each and every one of us,
and I was blessed by the sacrament of the moment.


  1. I am reveling in the imagery, painted by your words. Thank you.

  2. Oh my gosh, this makes me cry. It really moves me, especially this week. Did you see the pictures of my new grandson? There is one of him with my son - looks a lot like this one! Check out my June 22nd post. God bless! and thanks!

  3. When I saw this picture it immediately made me think of the picture Colleen put up of her son and grandson.
    Beautiful words and picture!
