God thought of you and so I am here." The back side of the card displays a poem by Cornelia Shipman titled "Our Baby." The poem reads: "Cradled in a flower Is our baby dear; Rocked by breeze so gentle, Knowing naught of fear. Heaven's light is shining In our baby's eyes, Loving message bringing To us from the skies. May the Father's blessing Fill this life each hour; Jesus, keep our baby As Thy pure, sweet flower".
