Still Born

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our afflictions, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.   II Cor. 1: 3-4

Tears
If tears could build a stairway,
and memories a lane,
I’d walk right up to Heaven
and bring you home again.
No farewell words were spoken
no time to say goodbye
you were gone before I knew it,
and only God knows why.
My heart still aches in sadness
and secret tears still flow,
what it meant to lose you,
no one will ever know.

There Is A Special Angel
There is a special Angel in Heaven

that is part of me.
It is not where I wanted him
but where God wanted him to be.
He was here but just a moment
like a night time shooting star.
And though he is in Heaven
he isn’t very far.
He touched the heart of many
like only an Angel can do.
So I send this special message
to the Heaven up above.
Please take care of my Angel
and send him all my love.

Angel Unawares

You sent a angel to us Lord, Straight from Thyself she came
We never even held her Lord, Or called her by her name,
Our selfish hearts would have her stay, Within this world of cares,
But how sweet the thought that Thou shoulds’t choose her,
As an “angel unawares.”

God made a perfect world.|
Ever since we lost that perfection, mankind has yearned for its return.
Faced with a situation like this our heart cries out for the perfection that was lost.
How can we do everything so right and yet it end is such tragedy.
Out of our deep sense of injustice we all cry, “It’s not fair!”

Dear Parents
I did not die young. I lived my span of life within your body and within your love. There are many that have lived long lives and have not been loved as me.

If you would honour me, then speak my name and number me among your family. If you would honour me, then strive to live in love, for in that love I now live.
Do not doubt that we will meet again. Until that happy day I will be with God and wait for you.

MY LITTLE ROSEBUD
My eyes shall never see their blooming;
I’ll not smell thy fragrance pure and sweet;
Thy petal-softness my hands not touch,
Nor my ears hear the patter of thy feet.

Yet thy thorns have pricked my heart,
My Rosebud plucked before the dew,
The One who sees and knows tomorrow
Will form the flower that is you.

Watered by my tears of sorrow,
Guided by His gracious love,
You shall bloom within the portals
Of His glory up above.

For the Son-shine of Heaven’s gardens
Will thy full beauty yet unfold
And He will tend thee, Little Rosebud,
Till my eyes shall thy face behold.
–I. Delene Thomas
March 26, 1979 after being told by her doctor that her soon-expected baby could not live.
