There is a great deal of sadness in my heart today and it is only befitting that this song came on. When I first began compiling this post – it was for very different reasons. I waited four days to start writing… and so much has changed. Yet… this song still brings solace to my soul.
I think in the midst of darkness, it can be difficult to see God’s grace, love and mercy. But I believe there is a reason and purpose for everything. My God has a plan. I will not say much about what is happening but please say this prayer with me for a beloved family member as they mourn their losses:
Psalm 34:18: “The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit.”
Teardrops are falling. We embrace this sad day.
A sweet little baby has just passed away.
So perfect his spirit, so perfect his love,
So perfect a gift from a Father above.
Our child, your family is grieving this day,
In our hearts God has told us why you couldn’t stay.
A spirit so special, so perfect, and pure,
should not have the trials of this life to endure.
You wanted a family, that’s why you came.
To be loved on earth, and given a name.
Then back to our Heavenly Father you went,
fulfilling the mission for which you were sent.
Although our grief is heavy this day,
we know you are happy, and not far away.
Loved ones have gathered close to your side.
Life is Eternal… you’ve really not died.
Know that we love you with all of our heart.
We’ll see you our dear one when this life we part.
Save us a place where we’ll be close to you,
and in joy we’ll embrace, as our love we renew.
