Children – A Poem

My son is one of the greatest blessings I have ever known. I often hear parents complain about how terrible their teenagers are, but I really can’t relate because my son is the most generous, kind, and loving person I know. He does sometimes annoy and frustrate me, and raising him poses its challenges, but I love him no matter what. And I know that God loves him even more than I do. I decided to write a poem about the blessing of children for my Thankful Thursday poem.


Children are a blessing
A gift from God above
Children of the One true King
They deserve our care and love

Children are not a burden
A curse from God above
To hold back men and women
From knowing fun and love

Children are our future
Given in trust from God above
Our duty is to help them mature
They need our faith and love

“I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them. Mark 10:15-16 (NIV).
