A Reminder of God's Presense

Last night we attended a beautiful memorial service to honor our Hannah and all of the other angels in Heaven. One mother read this beautiful poem that I wanted to share. It helped me to remember the heavenly life which she is living now and also to appreciate the many gifts she has and is continuing to give me- especially that of bringing Heaven closer to me.

The Tiny Rosebud

The Master Gardener from Heaven above
Planted a seed in the garden of love
And from it grew a rosebud small
That never had time to open at all
For God in His perfect and all wise way
Chose this rose for his heavenly bouquet
So think of your darling with the angels above
Secure and contented and surrounded by love
And remember that God blessed and enriched your lives too
For in dying, your darling brought Heaven closer to you.

  1. Katy,

    I love this poem and often refer to our babies as rosebuds :) And, the line that comforts me reads "secure and contented and surrounded by love" They are surrounded by "his" love and that gives me peace.
