    ~~~I’ll lend you, for a little time, a child of Mine,” He said. “for you to love the while he lives, ♡♡♡♡ ♡♡♡ and mourn for when he’s dead. It maybe six or seven years, or twenty-two or five, But will you, ’til I call him back, take care of him for Me? HE’LL bring his charms to gladden you, and should his stay be brief, You’ll have his memories as solace for your grief. I cannot promise he will stay, since ALL from earth return, But there are lessons tought down there I want this child to learn. I’ve looked the wide world over in search for teachers true, And from the throngs that crowd life’s lanes, I have selected you. Now will you give him all your love, nor think the laber vain, Nor hate Me, when I come to call to take him back again?” I fancied that I heard them say, “Dear Lord, Thy will be done! For all the joys thy child shall bring, the risk of grief we’ll run. We’ll shelter him with tenderness, We’ll love him while we may. But should the Angels call for him, Much sooner than we’ve planned, We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand.” May GOD comfort ALL of His Family during this very sorrowful time~~~My he Rest in Peace in GOD’s Beautiful Garden of Ever Lasting Peace~~Heis Among All The Angels~~For he is Now An Angel Above~~ Always LOVING YOU~~ALWAYS IN YOUR HEARTS~~TILL YOU MEET AGAIN AT HEAVEN’S GATE~~.
