A dear friend has passed her "due date" and is now in that time of waiting (advent) for her baby to be born. As I wrote that, the thought occurred to me that perhaps I could find an advent prayer or poem that would be meaningful for her now... Anyway, she is nervous about going too far past her due date and being swept into the stream of medicalized birth... I told her I would pray for her that her baby would come in the right time. So I'm on the look out for poems or prayer that would be an encouragement to her, and that would also let the baby know that she/he is most welcome here. Let me know if you have any ideas! TIA!
