It was the day after father’s day in 2015
it was like no other day I have ever seen.
With the weather in Florida being hot not mild,
but the day I witnessed birth of my first grandchild.
I heard of the birth of my granddaughter on that day
and started thanking God through the prayers I prayed.
another beautiful gift from God born into the world
has the beauty of an angels face with its wings unfurled.
My granddaughters name is Akenzlie and a joy she is to see
she’s one of God’s creations who’s special to my wife and me.
Now my wife and I have a grandchild that we will surely love,
with our thankfulness to God for this gift from above.
My first grandchild, Akenzlie Faith, is a gift from God I know
and my prayer is she will know God as she will learn and grow.
With her middle name Faith, this is what I pray,
that she will keep her eyes on God each and every day.
