Joyful Expectancy

At this time, joy is filling our house as we expect the arrival of our first grandchild, a sweet baby girl.

Joy is the expectancy of the moment,
the colors of spring popping,
peonies unfurling their petals,
birds chirping morning songs.

Joy is the awaited arrival of a newborn,
as soft as the pastel sky at sunset.

Joy is the birthing of a thought filled with hope,
floating into a universe of dreams,
filling the air with the essence of life
as it bursts into iridescent sparkles.

“You make known to me the path of life; 
you will fill me with joy in your presence, 
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.” 
Psalm 16:11

Stay tuned for the long-awaited news of my little bundle of joy!
