When God Takes A Child

What does it

mean to be

a Christian

when the God you know and love

takes a child you know and love?

When He takes

your child

your baby

your most

beloved

belonging?

✟    ✟    ✟

It means

your child

your baby

— made it to Heaven before you did —

It means – this moment – this second

your child

your baby

rests in the arms

of our Lord

~ Jesus Christ ~

For the instant

Time ceases

God begins

The infant of infinity will forget that Time was,

but your child will always remember you!

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son,

that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish,

but have everlasting life.”

John 3:16

Fantasies Lost

easter_bunny_jesus_santa_cl_light_tshirt

Innocence is lost — not when taught

“You’re born a sinner!”

That it’s a fact and you shouldn’t act

like that to be a winner

.

It’s lost about the time when taught

that Santa is a lie

The Easter Bunny, Superman…

and Jesus had to die?

.

Who taught the children fantasies?

Their dreams would not come true

Who’ll represent the innocent

when experience makes them blue?

.

They’ll find they have to love themselves

and in their hearts believe

You’re innocence is all you take

from this world we all must leave
