Collin

The gifts lie in wait, in a room painted blue
Little blessing from Heaven would be there soon
Hope fades in the night, blue skies turn to gray
As the little one slips away

You're holding her hand, you're straining for words
You're trying to make sense of it all
They're desperate for hope, darkness clouding their view
They're looking to you

Just love them like Jesus, carry them to Him
His yoke is easy, His burden is light
You don't need the answers to all of life's questions
Just know that He loves them and stay by their side
Love them like Jesus

Lord of all creation holds our lives in His hands
The God of all the nations holds our lives in His hands
The Rock of our salvation holds our lives in His hands
He cares for them just as He cares for you

So love them like Jesus, love them like Jesus
You don't need the answers to all of life's questions
Just know that He loves them and stay by their side
Love them like Jesus
Love them like Jesus

Our nephew, Collin James, went to be with Jesus on Saturday, January 19, 2008. It must be an amazing and wonderful thing to be held tightly in the arms of Jesus. Please be in prayer for his parents, Mark and Sandi, and his family as we miss him and look forward to the day when we will see him again. We will always remember!

So sad. I can't imagine what that must be like for Mark & Sandi - her especially, to feel the child grow and move inside her and then such heartbreak. Your family is in my prayers.
