I hope you all had a peaceful weekend. Im back from my "girls weekend getaway". It did me alot of good just to be distracted. I pray that each of you finds peace!
Verse..... "Save me, O God, for the waters have come up to my neck. I sink in deep mire. WHere there is no standing; I have come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me. I am weary with my crying: my throat is dry; my eyes fail while I wait for my God." Psalm 69:1-3
Thought for today.... I must feel worse before I feel better. I have to feel grief before we can experience joy. We must feel weak in order to feel God's power. (from Life's healing choices sermon)
Babes Born in Heaven
I slept securely in the shelter of the womb,
Perfectly protected in my very special room.
Only Jesus knew me, I was yet unborn.
That sorrowful day, your heart was torn.
You were left with only baby things,
I was carried away on angel's wings.
Taken to a far better place,
Secure in the comfort of Jesus' embrace.
babes born in heaven are bountifully blest,
for they've only ever known the best.
Their lullabies sweet angels sing,
In the palace nurrsery of the King.
Here you grow up, but you never grow old,
It's warm and comfy, but never cold.
Heaven's play grounds are always safe,
for even the tiniest waif.
I laugh and I sing and have playmates too,
AND JESUS TELLS ME ALL ABOUT YOU.
I've met Great Grandma and Grandpa too,
we're all waiting to welcome you.
Jesus will wipe away every tear,
The purpose for everything will be clear.
There'll be no more death, sadness or pain,
Only joy, contentment and peace here reign.
Though, for a moment, life seems unfair,
Eternity will be proof of his care.
What you've given up, for which you grieve,
Can't compare to that which you'll recieve.
Your child born and raised in Heaven,
One day, by the Father you'll be given.
