A Parent's Prayer
When a child is apart,
even for a little while,
a parent says a prayer.
We ask the Lord to protect…
to be where we cannot be,
to go where we cannot go.
In Him we place our trust,
for He sees, He knows.
Though how your heart must break,
parted for now from your little one,
know that the Lord keeps your little one safe,
with Him, where we all belong.
He will keep your child in a loving embrace,
just as He keeps you, a child, too.
That is His answer to a parent's prayer,
that is His love --
We have a great selection of memorial jewelry. Most of it can be personalized with your child's name. There are also pieces that are miniature urns, and can hold a small amount of ashes.
"If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. there
is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. but the most important
thing is, even if we're apart.. I'll always be with you."
Winnie the Pooh (A.A. Milne) ________________________________
seem so far apart,
You're always here within our hearts.
You filled our lives with joy and pleasure
You were to us a precious treasure.
A little while shall pass and then,
We'll see each other once again.
Loved, remembered and held so dear,
In minds and hearts you're always here.
Sometimes God picks a flower
that's still in full bloom.
Sometimes the flower that is chosen, we feel He's picked too soon.
We're at peace knowing; in God's heavenly garden,
He has placed the ones we treasure.
You have changed our lives forever.
Teardrops 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.
My Little Angel You’ve just walked on ahead of me
And I’ve got to understand
You must release the ones you love
And let go of their hand.
I try and cope the best I can
But I’m missing you so much
If I could only see you
And once more feel your touch.
Yes, you’ve just walked on ahead of me
Don’t worry I’ll be fine
But now and then I swear I feel
Your hand slip into mine.
God Took Him To His Loving Home
God saw him getting tired, a cure was not to be.
He wrapped him in his loving arms and whispered ‘Come with me.’
He suffered much in silence, his spirit did not bend.
He faced his pain with courage, until the very end.
He tried so hard to stay with us but his fight was not in vain,
God took him to His loving home and freed him from the pain.
Mother To An Angel
A tiny little
bid a silent sweet goodbye
to a sad and weeping mother,
then flew off to heaven’s sky.
When a spirit
child is perfect
there’s no need for them to stay.
They come and choose a family
then go quickly on their way.
and pain of earth life
are not theirs to endure.
God knows these precious little ones
are much too good and pure.
here, a bond is made.
Closer than any other.
One of everlasting love
between the child and mother.
the mother of an angel.
who is watching over me.
How I wish you could have stayed,
but it’s not meant to be.
For a time,
my little angel,
you and I will be apart,
but until I hold you in my arms,
I’ll hold you in my heart.
__________________________________ She was so very, very special
And was so from the start
You held her in your arms
But mainly in your heart
And like a single drop of rain
That on still waters fall,
Her life did ripples make
And touched the lives of all.
She's gone to play with angels
In heaven up above
So keep your special memories
And treasure. them with love
Although your darling daughter
Was with you just a while
She'll live on in your heart
With a sweet remembered smile
Then the child opened its eyes, and looked up into the angel's beautiful
face, which beamed with happiness, and at the same moment they were in
heaven, where joy and bliss reigned. The child received wings like the
other angel, and they flew about together, hand in hand.
By Hans Christian Andersen
God's garden has need of a little flower.
It had grown for a time here below.
But in tender love.
He took it above.
To a more favorable climate to grow.
