The New Baby

1 Comment

The New Baby by Elizabeth Stuart Phelps

Here is a sweet, fragrant mouth to kiss; here are two more feet to make music with their pattering about my nursery.  Here is a soul to train for God, and the body in which it dwells is worth all it will cost, since it is the abode of a kingly tenant.  I may see less of friends, but I have gained one dearer than them all, to whom, while I minister in Christ’s name, I make a willing sacrifice of what little leisure for my own recreation, my other darlings had left me.  Yes, my precious baby, you are welcome to your mother’s heart, welcome to her time, her strength, her health, her life-long prayers!

My new baby!  An answer to 5 years of prayer — Hannah, here only a few days old.

Laura and Hannah–Hannah is now 3 months old.

One thought on “The New Baby

  1. Every time I see Hannah I am reminded of God’s precious grace through the years of miscarriages and through all the prayers. His ways and His timing is always perfect!
