Discover Them

Matthew and David sledding down icy driveway, January 2007
26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, [b] and over all the creatures that move along the ground." Genesis 1:26-27

27 So God created man in his own image,

in the image of God he created him;

male and female he created them.
Like snowflakes, no two children prove exactly alike.
Fashioned by God and for His purposes,
Part of their wonder is discovery.
Who?, How?, Like?, and Dislike? wait to be uncovered.

Sit around my dinner table.
Let me get to know you!
I will ask you questions; see how you will answer.
"Ditto!" to your brother's answer will be disqualified.

Fried eggs beg for your opinions.
"I like fried eggs, " you say.
"But I don't like them too runny."
Served "hardi-soft" your way, my son.

You learn to spell your first word.
Aha! My name must be David "cat" Cochran.
Belly laugh, in stitches,
Oh the wonder of you, our son.

"No, Mommy!" you declare.
My reply, "You are not the boss!"
Corrected, you rejoin our dinner party.
Turns out broccoli is one of your favorites.

"Understand me!" your emotions cry.
That's right. You're wired, "Woman."
While your wires connect that way,
You must not rule or be ruled by them.

New addition, welcome.
We wonder who and how you will be.
What will you like and dislike?
We anticipate you, little blessing.

Lord, we close in prayer.
Open our hearts and eyes to your Designer genius.
Guide us to guide them in your plan.
Who?, How?, Like?, Dislike?--may we discover them.

God has given each of us gifts!

Suggest ways to better discover our children.
