Angel From The Host Of An Ivory Moon: (Crosby’s Baptism)

06 Jun

Wings reflecting the moon at sunrise,

Settled upon the child with no sin;

In water and parents, he was baptized.

His heart now lit, from a light within.

Shadows may cover his smile

As his youth transitions into understanding;

From failure to the success, patient all the while,

Like a crawl… to standing… to running,

For no minds’ reason at all.

He will awake during his life time

With a drop of water, a tear of joy

Running down his face; acknowledging his mother and father,

Being born under an ivory Host, with a visitor without error,

Or mistake. His Guardian Angel,

For whom, he will never forsake.

    He is blessed but he must be wary of negative factors which may still be bearing down on him!

    The dedication of a child is a wonderful thing. I have done it with my sons but also adminstered it for several families. As a parent it is my hope they are watched over in all their days, espcially at the age of my kids now, learning to make their own way.

    A point of transition, maybe the first on a long road towards a life… what a wonderful tribute.

    This is so beautiful and what a WOW that photograph is. Breathtaking. Yay for the little man, beginning his journey of wonder. I LOVE the title of this piece! He has a very cool Grandpa! Another type of guardian angel!

    Amen. It is so. So that is what Baptism is for!
