Anticipation

God enriches our lives with moments of anticipation. Many of these moments are held close to our hearts in our memories, and, some we experience time and time again. In this poem I hope to express God’s love!

Anticipation

Tiny crocuses waking from winter’s slumber!
The first pink rose of summer!
Spring’s first daffodil poking its head out from beneath Old Man Winter’s snow!
Your granddaughter jumping up and down to greet you with her face all aglow!
The clouds in summer’s sky floating softly above!
The joy of capturing a photo of spring’s first dove!

First fishing experience

The anticipation of catching fall’s first fish!
The joy of watching our family devour their favorite dish!
The first present your toddler opens under the Christmas tree!
The first time you teach her to catch a Frisbee!
The first taste of chocolate fudge brownies still warm from the oven!
Your child when you come home from work awaiting you with plenty of loven!

Summer Vacation with Grandma

The face of your loved one after a long separation!
Your first day on your long awaited summer vacation!
The first time you sang for your church congregation!
The first time you felt God’s Spirit overwhelm you with total elation!
Your first piece of music ready to play in front of an audience!
A date with your spouse at a restaurant with romantic nuance!

Honeymoon

A warm summer’s night under the stars with your lover!
The first time you kissed so softly under the canopy’s cover!
The first time as a couple you listened to your favorite tune!
The first time you danced on your honeymoon!
The birth and first words of your newborn child!
The first time she danced all silly and wild!
Yes, these moments of anticipation are little blessings from God above!
Some are held close to our hearts in memories, yet each one spells love!

Nice old photos that brings out memories of course. And I believe in the Creator, and I believe we're going back to where we are from-
Not exactly-
But depends on our deeds!
Thanks for the nice writing.
