Waiting

Waiting

Dear Baby, here beneath my heart,
I thought that you might come today;
The timing seemed just right.

But the stars are out
And the moon is high
And sheepishly I wonder why
I try to arrange the plans
Of God.

For now I know
You will not come
Until the One who holds eternity
Rustles your soft cocoon
And whispers in tones that I will not hear,
“It’s time, precious gift.”

“Now it’s time.”

-by Robin Jones Gunn

Your baby knows when it is time to be born.  No one else but baby can decide.  A lot goes into it.  Yes, it is hard to be patient, but in the end, if you are, your baby will come out and be healthier than if you rushed it.

Enjoy this time!
