Heaven's Very Special Child
The following poem was read at church yesterday, and I really liked it. It's online on one or more sites about Tourette's syndrome.
A meeting was held qute far from Earth,
It's time again for another birth
said the Angels to the Lord above,
"this special child will need much love."
His progress may seem very slow,
accomplishments he may not show
and he'll require extra care
from the folks he meets down there.
He may not run or laugh or play
his thoughts may seem quite far away...
In many ways he won't adapt
and he'll be known as handicapped...
So let's be careful where he's sent.
We want his life to be content.
Please, Lord, find the parents
who would do a special job for you.
They will not realize right away
the leading role they're asked to play
but with this child sent from above,
comes stronger faith and richer love..
And soon they'll know the privilege given,
in caring for this gift from Heaven,
now precious charge so meek and mild.
"He's Heaven's very special child."
