Though the birth of a baby can certainly be a trial,
to this mom and dad it seemed more than worthwhile.
Choosing a derivative of grandmotherís name,
a maternal namesake she first became.
Then a middle name to choose was the time,
and paternal grandmotherís name fit in just fine.
So each time her name was spoken,
a kindred thread was woven.
Soon a tapestry of her life could be seen
and from the center was spelled the name Emily Irene.
The Golden Rule each grandmother gave
taught the young girl how to behave.
With truths from the Bible of salvation
they carefully laid an eternal foundation,
Reminiscent of a New Testament story
that saw Timothy into Glory.
2 Ti 1:5 I have been reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also. (NIV)
