Precious Princess

I am a precious princess.

A child of the King,

Mommy tells me so.

Mommy and Daddy have wanted me from a very long time ago.


From the moment she knew I would make a showing

Mommy kept her friends updated

On how fast I was growing.


I am a treasure, a prize.

Daddy tells me

For God so loved the world

Jesus came to save my life.


I am an answer to the many

Prayers that have been prayed

Because on Christ the Solid Rock

Mommy and Daddy have stayed.



I wrote this poem as a tribute to my friend and her husband who are expecting their first child by the end of this year. They have not settled on a name for the little girl yet. She and her husband have been calling the baby Princess. That was the inspiration for my title.

My friend had an abusive first marriage. Her second marriage is a beautiful thing to watch. He is devoted to her. Together, they are devoted to serving God. They knew for a long time they wanted to be parents. I am sure they will do great. It is so exciting for them to be welcoming a child into their family very soon. I am excited for them.

My friend used Facebook to track and share her baby's progress

It was a lot of fun getting these updates.
