A miracle is a special gift
that's granted by our God,
We prayed with all our heart'n soul
God smiled, then gave a nod.
Each child is a miracle
some take more time to come,
When they finally arrive to us
our work has just begun.
Teach them all there is to know
show them along the way,
Love them dearly with all your heart
through each and every day.
Sometimes we have to really work
and pray for what we need,
A daughter for your family
shows how you did succeed.
God raised his arms and then he said
"this miracle is overdue",
Angels flying at her side
delivering his Grace to you.
Ten little fingers, ten little toes,
and laughter to fill the air,
With beautiful eyes that sparkle so bright
and pretty bows tied in her hair.
Miracles really do come true
faith is all you need,
Some miracles even have a name
May each one of them come true.
Whatever plans you're making,
May they all work out for you.
And may you have more happiness
Than any words can tell.
Not only on this day,
But all the year as well.
May you have a little sunlight
To guide you on your way.
May you discover, little by little,
Happiness that's here to stay.
May you grow a little stronger
And a little wiser with each dawn.
May you have a little time to
Believe in dreams to dream upon.
May all the joy your heart desires
Find its way to you.
And may the blessings that
Brighten up your days
Keep on shining through.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints.
Other times there were one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life
When I was suffering from anguish, sorrow, or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord, "You promised me, Lord,
That if I followed you, you would walk with me always.
But I noticed that during the most trying periods of my life
There have only been one set of prints in the sand.
Why, When I have needed you most, you have not been there for me?"
The Lord replied,
"The times when you have seen only one set of footprints
Is when I carried you."
