Godspeed Little Man

God, Take This Child....
by Nancy Scott

Sweet child whom we never really got to know,
It’s hard for us to let you go.
We waited and we wanted you.
We had so many dreams for you.
We think of smiles we'll never see.
We think of events that will never be.
There will be no first steps and no first teeth.
There is only a void and our own grief.
We planned to take you to places far and near.
We yearned to keep you safe and free from fear.
We hoped to show you much of your new world.
We wanted to teach you as your life unfurled.
It’s hard to understand why you, our baby, died.
We feel so numb right now, many tears we’ve cried.
We have so many questions and no answers seem to come.
We tried so hard to save you; nothing could be done.
God, we stand before you broken-hearted
and ask you to heal these lives that must be parted
from this little one we can no longer hold,
who will always be a part of us, even when we're old.)
God, take this child in your loving arms.
No more can he suffer any harm.
Bless him always and bless us too.
Be with us and help us to make it through.

This has to be the hardest blog post ever to write.  It's one that needs to be written, I would feel like I was not recognizing the beautiful little life that blessed our world if I were to not acknowledge to my readers how our lives changed last week. 

Last Friday, February 10th, my beautiful tiny little grandson Jacob was brought into this world, already passed on into our saviors arms.  We held him and loved on him and felt the love well up in our hearts for him.    He truly was beautiful.  He weighed all of 1 lb 2 1/2 oz, and was just absolutely perfect.  My daughter had spent 21 days in the hospital just trying to prevent this outcome.  It's been an emotional rollercoaster, and we laid him to rest this last Thursday alongside other family members who have gone on before. 

There are so many people who have touched our lives in so many ways throughout, and we feel that little Jacob was also able to touch many many lives even though his presence will never be known on this earth. 

Keep us in your prayers as we go about our daily lives, learning how to live with this loss of a precious baby that was so wanted. 

We played this song at his funeral, it's always been my grandsons "Payton's" song.....but it fit for baby Jake <3
