A YEAR WITH JESUS
It's been a year, a long year, Jen
Since we last saw your dear face.
How we made it through thus far
Was only by God’s grace.
Through every moment of every day
We longed to have you near,
To laugh, to share and plan with you
And your lovely voice to hear.
But, O our Lord had other thoughts,
And called you to His side;
He welcomed you with all His love
While His arms were opened wide.
And now you’re walking Heaven’s streets,
We know you’re happy there;
This calms our fears and gives us peace
To know you’re in God’s care.
We miss you more than we can say
So we’ve asked our Lord above
From Mom and Dad and Jamie too.
To give you all our love.
You can’t come back to us we know,
But we can go to you;
We’ll keep that thought close to our hearts-
Seeing you and Jesus too!
Until that day keep singing Jen,
It’s only for awhile
Then we’ll join you around God’s Throne;
Now that thought brings a smile!
(Thank You Lord for giving us the joy, if only for a few years of being the parents and sister of our beautiful Jen)
