One Precious Life

"Oh! How Precious," are the exclamations
of the crowd as they stare at the baby girl.
"Oh! How Beautiful," are the words heard
when the baby girl grows up and becomes a new bride.
Time passes and the bride becomes a mother,
a grandmother, and a very old woman.
Her hair thins and turns white and
her face withers and wrinkles with age.
"Oh! How Precious and Beautiful," God exclaims,
as He welcomes His reborn daughter into Heaven.
