"Heaven’s Special Child" - An Inspirational Poem for Saturday, April 13th

Heaven’s Special Child

A meeting was held quite 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 folk 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 soon 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
Will 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 catering for this gift from Heaven
Their precious charge, so meek and mild
Is Heaven's very special child"
