Remembering Lily, year 5

Lily's birth day in Heaven is in less than a week!  She would have turned 5...It's surreal that she would be learning her ABC's and going to school next Fall.

I would love to remember other children who will be celebrating with her in Heaven by writing their name and birth date.  If you would like me to write your child's name you can comment under this post or on the event on FB

Although things are not perfect
Because of trial or pain
Continue in thanksgiving
Do not begin to blame
Even when the times are hard
Fierce winds are bound to blow
God is forever able
Hold on to what you know
Imagine life without His love
Joy would cease to be
Keep thanking Him for all the things
Love imparts to thee
Move out of 'Camp Complaining'
No weapon that is known
On earth can yield the power
Praise can do alone (or prayer can do alone)
Quit looking at the future
Redeem the time at hand
Start every day with worship
To 'thank' is a command
Until we see Him coming
Victorious in the sky
We'll run the race with gratitude
eXalting God most high
Yes, there will be bad times
and there will be good, but
Zion waits in glory . . .
where none are ever sad!
