Sandy Hook

Please pray for all the families connected to the Sandy Hook tragedy. When we can’t find the words ourselves, sometimes others can say it for us…

In loving memory of the Sandy Hook Elementary School Children

Twenty new stars dancing in the night, they lead the way to Never-land, the second star on the right.
Twenty sweet voices float on the breeze, now cherubs who giggle, tickle, and tease.
Twenty doll faces, gone far too soon, leap merrily with the cow, who jumped over the moon.
Twenty first kisses never to be shared, “Eternally innocent.” the heavens declare.
Love never loved, stories never to be told, hearts never broken, children never to be old.
Dreams never dreamed, songs never sung, our hearts are heavy, our heads are hung.
We must not forget, six more gave their lives, heroes in the form of sisters, mothers, and wives.
All across the country hearts shattered and broke, we collectively prayed it was some cruel awful joke.
Our thoughts go out to the families, friends, and community, we wish them love, peace, and unity.
Tonight, hold your children just a little more snug, bury your face in their necks and cherish this hug.
Be careful not to let these moments slip past. You just never know when it might be your last.


Christmas in Heaven

I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below
with tiny lights, like heavens stars, reflecting on the snow.
The sight is so spectacular; please wipe away that tear
for I am spending Christmas with Jesus this year.

I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear,
but the sounds of music can’t compare with the Christmas choir up here.
I have no words to tell you, the joy their voices bring;
for it’s beyond description, to hear the angels sing.

I know how much you miss me. I can see the pain in your heart,
but I am not so far away. We really aren’t apart.
So, be happy for me dear ones,
for you know, I’m spending Christmas with Jesus this year.
