God's Little Angel

My sister wrote this poem for Faith after she died. My daughter Rebekah read this at Faith's Service. Let's just say there really wasn't a dry eye in the house. It still makes me cry when I read it now. We are blessed by all of our Family and Friends that have been along with us on this Journey.

God’s Little Angel

God's Precious Little Angel Who Was Named Faith
Was needed in Heaven To Show God's Grace
Her Time on Earth Was Not to be
Yet, We Loved Her so as all could see

The Prayers for this little one that many had brought
Were not in vain as some may have thought
God knows what's best for all concerned
Yet, this is a hard lesson to learn

Our Precious Little Faith so dear
Your Mommy carried you and kept you near
Her Broken Heart will mend in time
Yet, you will always be on her mind

Your brothers and sisters, a nice group I say
Would have been a great help to show you the way
They waited for you to join their nice crowd
Sometimes quiet and sometimes loud

Faith my love, even though we never met
I feel I know you and will never regret
The thought of you and the many prayers
Yes also, the many shed tears

Your Mommy and Daddy and all the rest
The ones that loved you from east to west
Will look forward to the day we meet
When we will be together at Jesus Feet

- Aunt Martie

Oh Dear Faith, we look forward to the day we get to meet you face to face! Mommy and Daddy and all your brothers and sisters look forward to that special day! We Love You!

Oh Karen, every time I see the picture of Faith, my heart just melts. What a beautiful baby - truly like a little baby doll.

Boy, you sure look young to have had 10/13 children!!! Did you have them all very close together?

I hope you'll enjoy being in the spotlight today. I'm sure many lives will be touched by your story today.
