Where Did You Get Your Eyes So Blue?


God gave them to me when I was coming through.

How did they all just come to be you?
God thought about me, and so I grew.

But how did you come to us, you dear?
God thought about you, and so I am here.

Excerpted from "Baby" by George MacDonald

She is PRECIOUS! What an angel!

And that verse ... it reminds me of one that my grandma used to read me ... "Where did you come from, baby dear?" "Out of the everywhere, into the here." Is that the same poem?

It's the same poem! I just looked up the reference and added it. This is one of my mother-in-law's favorites.

Thanks for your sweet comment and for visiting!
