it's five a.m.

it is very still in our house
the clock says five
the baby sleeps on my right, my husband on my left
they sleep with the same expression
and i could look at them forever

i tiptoe downstairs 
slowly
i leave the lights off, prolonging the moment
before babies need food
need changing

before there is email to be answered
dishes to wash
appointments, cares, laughter

when i am still, quiet and sure

my Bible is open

"but from everlasting to everlasting, the Lord's love is with those who fear Him"

we have been given a singularly perfect gift 
who could measure His love for us?
