Our friends Shawn & Amy and Sadie have lost their baby girl; Hope passed away last night. This just floods my memory of all the little babies and kids we've known. It's sad to think that their life here has ended, but I'm reminded that it will begin in heaven with us one day. Praying for the families of Jack, Hope, Drayton, Isabelle, and Addison.
When we all get to Heaven
Lyrics by Eliza E. Hewitt, music by Emily D. Wilson
Sing the wondrous love of Jesus;
sing his mercy and his grace.
In mansions bright and blessed
he'll prepare for us a place.
When we all get to heaven,
what a day of rejoicing that will be!
When we all see Jesus,
we'll sing and shout the victory!
While we walk the pilgrim pathway,
clouds will overspread the sky;
but when travelling days are over,
not a shadow, not a sigh.
Let us then be true and faithful.
trusting, serving everyday;
just on glimpse of Him in glory
will the toils of life repay.
Onward to the prize before us!
Soon his beauty we'll behold;
soon the pearly gates will open;
we shall tread the streets of gold!
Thank you Amy, for sharing your heart & thought with us, it is a joy to follow along and pray with you. We'll still be praying. Amy's entry is found on her blog: Mending Hearts and bending knees
