Our Faith is Growing

By Shyron E. Shenko


Our faith is growing everyday

Showing us the mercies of God's loving way

While she learns to walk and talk and play

Now that she is ours to stay

Faith in a Basket

How long can you keep Faith in a basket?

Not for very long

Faith will get out, there is no doubt

And fill our hearts with Song

Precious Faith

So Precious Faith, wherever you go or whatever you do

We will always have faith with love for you

And, as you grow, our love for you will too

We also know sweet Angel Hope is watching over you


Growing up with Faith truly is a sublime

Faith with love, or love with faith,

To link the two together we are inclined

And seeds of Faith and love are sown together, they will become entwined.

Happy Birthday sweet little one.

In the glow of the setting sun,

Our sweet Faith has just turned one.

She walks and talks and loves to dance

When she does the Hot Dog Dance

Your poor heart won't stand a chance

She will steal it with one glance

      Au fait, thank you for the comments and for sharing this again. I have so many up-dated that have not been posted yet and so many pictures.

      I have been outside a lot but not as much as usual. It has been a busy week, and summer is this way almost to busy to write and so many interruptions'.

      I hope that you are staying cool. It was good to talk to you yesterday, albeit a few short minutes.

      Stay blessed and cool

      Love Shyron

      Wondering how this little girl is coming along. Sharing this again.

      Hope you changed your mind and stayed inside. 98 degrees here with a THI of 7 degrees. Tomorrow will be as bad or worse. Blessings to you and hope you didn't get a headache or heat stroke. Take care . .

      Back to see if anything new has happened. A nice hub to read especially after reading or watching the news where everything is usually negative. It's nice to see that good things happen too.

      Voting up and BAUI. Also sharing again.

      One more frigid night before we get another reprieve. Hope your meeting went well las' night. Hugs and blessings . . .

      Techygran, thank you for the Post Script. Maureen took the pictures and I added the poems. Maureen and I have been friends outside HubPages for many years and as we corsponded by snail mail, telephone and e-mail. I wrote the poem for her first granddaughter "A Glimmer of Hope", and with her permission used the photos she sent me. The story Maureen's and her family's I just put them in words in poetic form.

      You don't need to apologize.

      Thank you again for the comment my friend.

      What beautiful photos and so nice to see how well Faith is coming along. What a lovely poem to mark Faith's progress. What a lucky little girl to have so many people who love her and your documenting her progress is just one way she will have of knowing that when she's old enough to understand. These poems and articles will make wonderful keepsakes for her to remind her especially in the dark hours that everyone experiences from time to time, that so many people care.

      Voted up and beautiful, interesting and awesome. Will share.
