A Baby is God's Opinion

“Making the decision to have a child–it’s momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking outside your body.” ~Elizabeth Stone

“I see something deeper, more infinite, more eternal than the ocean in the expression of the eyes of a little baby when it wakes in the morning and coos or laughs because it sees the sun shining on its cradle.” ~Vincent van Gogh

“You formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” ~Psalm 139:13

“Diaper backward spells repaid.” ~Marshall McLuhan

“If you were to open up a baby’s head–and I am not for a moment suggesting that you should–you would find nothing but an enormous drool gland.” ~Dave Barry

“People who say they sleep like a baby usually don’t have one.” ~Leo J. Burke

“See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.” ~Matthew 18:10

“Every child begins the world again.” ~Henry David Thoreau

    I’ll have to send that Dave Barry quote to my dad (age 93). We used to enjoy his column in the paper together. This small sample demonstrates why. Thanks for the smiles, Mitch–and the tug of nostaliga on the heartstrings!

    I’m sending a link to this post to my daughter, a new mom who feels the concordant worry and guilt of that role, with the suggestion: “Keep your eye on the big picture. You’re doing everything fine. Love Mom”
