A Prayer for the Family of Baby Grace, 30AUG
Thought I would share this devotion prayer with you that I wrote and shared with a family who had precious few moments with their baby. The prognosis was dim, but the LOVE was as bright the Light could ever be.
One day, the day after the baby lived and then passed, I sat in the car ready to go to work and I was thinking about those precious few minutes that baby Grace had on earth and I saw a photo of LOVE being poured out to her while anointing her for her trip to heaven…. So, I got back got out of my car, and told my 18-year-old daughter (who had been a preemie) that I changed my mind to stay home from work most of that day and we would finish all the preparation for her college trip for the next day. So, through the reminder of Baby Grace’s precious moments and my witness of beautiful love poured out to them, I have been tremendously reminded to juggle my hectic schedule with the much MORE important love of God’s gift of family – and my time with them and them with me…
God gifted precious few minutes for an outpouring our love to baby Grace and baby Grace was gifted the few minutes on earth to be blessed with having an outpouring of love to her. God wanted to show her, show her family, and us “how deep and wide His love is” by giving her love of family. Time, even if short, was heaven on earth… LOVE never ends…
Here’s the devotion:
FAMILY is a gift FOREVER for whom you can pour out your LOVE.
LOVE is a gift for the giving.
LOVE the Lord and LOVE one another.
GRACE is a gift of LOVE.
GRACE is a gift from GOD.
GRACE is a gift of endless LOVE, under all circumstances and surpassing all understanding.
GRACE is a gift of FORGIVENESS for all.
GRACE is a gift of LOVE ETERNAL…
ETERNAL LOVE is FOREVER because of the gift of GRACE.
GRACE IS LOVE.
LOVE IS GRACE.
LOVE is in EVERYONE whom GOD LOVES.
LOVE is GOD.
GOD LOVES EVERYONE.
GOD LOVES YOU.
GOD LOVES GRACE.
GRACE LOVES YOU.
