BABY ON BOARD


They have a baby in the car, Father?


The sign in the back window of the car —

‘BABY ON BOARD’ —

Announces the presence of a baby.

So they have a baby!

Why must I know?


Are they letting me know

that they’re probably tired;

that their sleep’s been disturbed night after night;

that their car is filled with infant-regalia?

Are they asking me to not tail-end them;

to not sound the horn?

Or are they just boasting—

telling the world that they made a baby?


I used to wonder about ‘BABY ON BOARD’;

But now I’m a parent,

I think that I get it:

Since this little one came into my life,

I just want everyone to know

That my life has been

wonderfully gifted,

truly enriched,

filled with unfathomable delight,

And I’ll never be the same again.


It’s how I feel about you, Father.

Since you came into my life,

I just want everyone to know

That my life has been

wonderfully gifted,

truly enriched,

filled with unfathomable delight,

And I’ll never be the same again.


When someone becomes a Christian, he becomes a brand new person inside. He is not the same anymore. A new life has begun! (2 Corinthians 5: 17, TLB)
