All of our babies are presents from God.
Presents that are merely on loan.
To us He's entrusted these most precious gifts
As if they were truly our own.
Some leases we hold on these bundles of love
Are for short term, but others for long.
But never at any time should we forget
To whom they all really belong.
God has in our care then allowed them to be
To nurture, to love, and to train.
To teach them of God's plan for living
Setting values for them to attain.
Life's great hourglass for us mortals can't pause
The sand never stops flowing through.
When the babies grow on and depart from the nest
We have done for them all we can do.
The time they are babies lasts only so long
They appear and then soon they are gone.
They, too, will get presents of God's very own
The continuous cycle moves on.
In time all these 'presents' to God will return
Be their span of life short or extended.
For their ultimate destiny lies solely with Him
It is all just as God has intended.
I try to focus on the fact that my boys were/are a gift. And we were granted precious moments with Zac before his destiny came to a close. I try to remember all the lives he has touched. And I pray that Zac will never be forgotten, and that people will still say his name.
Evan is a gift that we have been allowed to treasure here on earth. And I will never take that for granted!!
As frustrating as it is to be in this place of answered prayer and what feels like unanswered prayer...I will still fight to keep my relationship with God straight. No matter what...Zac is still with us and one day we will be together again. In the meantime I can be thankful that he is in the best care possible outside of our own. And I will do the very very very best that I can for Evan here on earth!!
