An Easter Letter to My Daughter in Heaven
Who are you today,
And what do you do?
How do you spend your day?
When we're sad, how do you get through?
How is it to live without sin,
No bad habits, no temptations
To cause you war within,
No irritations, no aggravations
To sap your soul and worry you,
Just happy times and meeting friends,
Sweet times with God to get you through,
Just your pure sweet spirit God ever tends
And loving Him back, the best of Friends?!
Baby girl, I miss you so,
But it does help Mommy's heart to know
You are happy, in the sweetest care
Surrounded by loved ones who are There;
Face to Face with your Savior
His sweet fragrance for you ever to savor,
Hand in Hand with the Living Lord
Who died to kill Death, your sweet reward;
Kneeling before the Almighty God Your Lord
Crying tears of happiness that He conquered Death's sword,
Continually amazed at His amazing grace,
And being held so close to Him, You ever see His face!
You ever commune with His Sweet Spirit,
His still, small voice so close, you can always hear it
As He reminds you who you were, and who you are today,
Reminding how He got you through, and always heard you pray.
I imagine you cry many tears every day
Just like your mommy, when we each pray,
And yet yours are steeped in happiness
For you know the end of the story is faithful to God's tenderness.
Pray for us that through our tears, we'll keep our eyes on our Lord
For He promises all the bitter pain we now bear cannot compare to His magnanimous reward,
Which includes that we'll get to see you
And bask in His glorious love that paid it all for us to make it through!
Happy Easter little one!
Give my deepest love to God the Father, His Sweet Spirit, and His Precious, Loving Son.
Hold me close in heart as I do you
For it's Love that is shared that gets me through...
Merry Katherine's Easter Poem to Her Mommy
Mommy, I'm in Heaven
With Jesus now you know;
You miss me there on Easter,
But Here, my face is all aglow!
For though Easter egg hunts are always fun,
My adventures Here never end,
For now Mommy, I'm with Jesus~
He's my Forever Friend!
He takes me on wild chases
To see the rainbow's end,
We ride the rain together,
And then we sail the wind!
So though you miss me there beside you
Know I hover near;
I'm missing out on nothing,
For Easter IS right Here!
You may be sad for me today,
But remember when You lift your voice to pray,
The One you cry to, in your deepest pain,
Is the One who stays right beside me ~
So know your Deepest Loss is my Greatest Gain!
...And I know the rest of the Story…
We'll soon be together forever, Mommy, to bask in Jesus' Glory!
Have a sweet Easter, Mommy ~ don't forget that's why I'm alive!
Think of it - in the Greatest Easter Egg Hunt of all,
I've won the Golden Prize ~
I was dead, but now I am alive!
Mommy, your prayers are all answered,
Jesus helped me find my way back to Him,
And now in His arms, I thrive!
Happy Easter, Mommy and Daddy!
Because Love made the Greatest Sacrifice,
Today, let's thank our Loving Lord your baby girl's alive!
