Goodbye Sweet Baby

Lucy, sweet baby, we will miss you. You were dearly loved and adored by your family and those who knew your family. I was around you only a few times, but you touched my life in a special way, and I know you were like sunshine to those who knew you well. Your round brown eyes were charming since your newborn days and the inquisitiveness and wonder you showed as a two-year old filled you with even more beauty. Our hearts ache deeply for those you left behind, but we know Jesus will wrap his arms around them, and continue to pour out his love for each of them. We don’t know why Jesus took you home after only 26 months of life in this spinning world he sustains; but little darling, we will always remember you. We loved you and we love your family. Goodbye dear, young child, we will see you someday in heaven.


Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be.

Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

Great is Thy Faithfulness
