"The deepest spiritual lessons are not learned by His letting us have our way in the end, but by His making us wait, bearing with us in love and patience until we are able honestly to pray what He taught His disciples to pray:

'Thy Will Be Done'."

Tear Jerker

I forget where I got this from, but I love it! Grab some tissue...

For our little man, Zachary Kyle...

Precious, tiny, little one
You'll always be to me
So perfect, pure and innocent-
Part of Heaven's family

We dreamed of you and your life
And all that it would be
We waited and longed for you to come
And join our family

We never had the chance to play,
to laugh, to rock, to wiggle
We long to hold you, touch you now
And listen to you giggle

I'll always be your Mother,
He'll always be your Dad
You will always be our child,
The child that we had

But now you're gone...but yet you're here
We sense you everywhere
You are our sorrow and our joy
There's love in every tear

Just know our love goes deep and strong
We'll forget you NEVER-
The child we had but never had,
And yet will have Forever!

That reminds me of what you said at Zack's service... about how you guys won't hear his voice or take him to a Sox game hear on earth. Praise God that He takes His little ones home and that you and Nate will see your boy again, this time in the presence of our Savior.

I don't remember where you found that either, I remember you reading it to me though. It's a beautiful poem.....Zach is and will always be loved and missed...and always my first grandchild.
