IT’S THE QUIET ONES

IT’S THE QUIET ONES
(About Florrie Anne Lawton)

Some people become presidents
influential business leaders
or wealthy entrepreneurs
the important people

she worked in the church nursery
for decades
outside of those walls
members of the rest of this world would know little of her

she didn’t look like a minister
with robes and the like
but when babies were dedicated on a Sunday morning
she would carry them
nestled in her arms
as if holding rare treasure
for they were to her
just that

always a lovely smile
so delighted to present these newborns
facing the congregation
so everyone could see

it was the smile of an angel
a servant
quiet
so beautifully genteel
and without pretense
or bombast
just simple devotion
to to her little ones

she’d sing to the babies
each one
her soft voice so sweetly


love permeated that nurser. it was a thing of heartwarming beauty and heavenly consequrnce

she followed their lives
even after leaving her care
they mattered
for they were her sacred charge her Kingdom work

You may not know her
but the babies do

“And the King shall answer and say unto them, ‘Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, ye have done it unto Me.’
