Robertatalloni means creativity. Whether in writing or in more typical art forms artistry (and a bit of fun) must be part of the work.

Granddaughter, Brand New, So Sweet, So Unique--

You are an Immeasurably Precious Grandchild to Us!


Precious granddaughter,

Such an extraordinary treasure-

You are held close inside our hearts!

Second pink daughter

To our son and his wife (your father,

And dear mom), another sweetheart!

Cherished dear sister,

To your wonderful big sister,

Mysterious babe, lone concert.

Her new visitor

Here to stay, protected, secure,

You will keep one and all alert!


Sweet, sweet baby grandchild, even in prayer words cannot convey

How priceless and loved you are, yet, our Heavenly Father knows!

Dearest AG,


So named because truly, the Lord’s grace is our only complete joy, I thank and praise God for you, my fourth grandchild. Praying God’s Word over you will be one of the great joys of my life and I look forward to seeing you grow in the knowledge of His Word.

May His grace continue to guard you now at your beginning, growing and carrying you throughout your life, entirely enveloping you in His loving leadership that protects and grows you in every good way.

May His Word guide you as you prayerfully read it, becoming your life-giving food and drink for all of your times and blessing you with a fruitfulness that magnifies His Name and Word in and through you.

May each new unfolding of His truths in your heart and mind equip you to depend more fully on Him and allow you to be a leader among your peers for His glory.

May the awareness of His presence encourage you as you walk with Him day by day, strengthening you in your walk with Him, and may you live out the song of grace that is the birthright of your name.

May His Spirit give you the understanding that protects you from any knowledge that is not His and all wisdom that does not come from Him, helping to ensure that His good gifts will be yours through His Son, Jesus the Christ.

OXOXO


Word Study: Secure

The word secure can be used as an adjective or a verb meaning to fastened tightly or to attach to something, respectively. In this poem there is a sense of both in its usage. Dictionary.com's thesaurus provides us with more insight.

Coming from Latin in its original form to our English, the word secure in other languages provides interesting angles to consider. One of my favorites comes from Italy where secure can mean confident and/or tranquil. In Somali the word secure is written aamin, and the Japenese meaning ranges from safety to quietness.

English words that can convey the same meaning as secure include protected, sheltered, guarded, and shielded. You can understand why I would have the full meaning of this word in mind as I wrote this poem for dear little AG.

      Thank you so much, VirginiaLYnne.

      It doesn't matter what they are called, grandbabies are precious! :)

      You might like to post your poems, especially if you have a themed group of them. Doing so is a new experience for me. My little ones are so young--I'm not sure if I will change the poems over time, or add other poems to the posts as these babies grow up.

      Somehow, at this same time I've gotten up my courage to begin posting some short stories themed around "home for the holidays." We'll see how it goes... I guess it's because poetry and fiction are such personal work that posting it comes with an element of embarrassment. :-)

      So appreciate that you stopped by with your comment!

      Congratulations on your new sweet grandbaby (as they say here in Texas). I'm old enough to have grandchildren, but started so late (35) that I'm still working on the children part. I've written poems for my kids but not thought of posting on hubpages. Great idea to announce and celebrate!
