In Memory of Anna

Dear Anna,

Your time here with us was so brief~
but just long enough
in God's time.

Our Lord sent His angels
to carry you home to Heaven yesterday
as you skipped along holding mommy's hand.

Pray for her now, and for your daddy
and your brother and sister~
for your Godparents, priests, family and friends...
Pray also for the drivers, officers and responders.
For your prayers are perfect~
baptized child of Jesus!

You will be missed,
but we praise God 
with you, Anna, 
for His plan
~unknown to us~
is perfect in every way.

Anna's story here.

Little Flower of Jesus
Pray for us.

I cannot stop praying for this little one, for her family, for her circle of people, for all who were there, for the drivers and their families, for these schools, for all of us who drive and who walk. Your post is a good reminder that God is "in the loop" on our timing on this earth. That gives some comfort in a sea of pain, doesn't it? Thanks for your post.

Oops. That last post was from Angie, not Kaleb. Although Kaleb sends his love on this too.

Thank you so much for this Bridget. It means so much to me. We could not be getting though this without the love of our family and the body of Christ surrounding us.

May I use your poem for her funeral card? It is perfect and is exactly what I have been looking for.

Peace,
Melissa
