About the Poem
I was told I would never have a child. My faith in God proved all were wrong. He gave me that gift at the age of 38
One Minute Until Midnight
|by Pauline Hamblin|
|How long is too long
For God to answer prayer?
Consider Sarah, Elizabeth and me.
We prayed for children, many years, all three.
People laughed and made scorn.
But after 23 years my child was born.
Miracle baby - that's what he is.
Sent from God, precious jewel of his.
Joshua Caleb is his name.
Devoted men to God was their fame.
I hope someday
His life will touch.
Others with his gentleness.
Reminding all to God does call.
He answers prayers both great and small.
To my son in whom I'm well pleased
