A poem from our Uncle

I thought I would share a poem/letter that was written by Anthony's Uncle John. This was shared at Carleigh's service.

Dear Mommy and Daddy,

Please don't cry and think of me as gone
God just has a better plan-with Him is where I belong

I was born your daughter and that I will always be
I gave up my human body as it was not right for me

My spirit will always be with you
At times you may even be surprised
I will come to you with many a disguise

Your inner spirit will know when I am with you or when I'm near
To a human it is hard to explain and make clear

Through your inner spirit you will see
Little unexplainable things happen
You will know-it is me

I am so grateful that I was given the chance to experience birth
All the real love and attention for me and my time on earth

As an infant I obviously couldn't communicate
But through my spirit I saw and remember everything and everyone
As a human I was able to relate

I felt no pain through this journey
For me it was an enjoyable experience
So if you have different thoughts-please don't worry

I can't explain God's new plan
I guess you really have to understand
The relationship between spirit and man

My time with you really made me appreciate true love
A love that honors God in Heaven up above

Someday, many years from now-you will see
We will all be together again in Heaven
To enjoy love and happiness-for eternity

Mommy, Daddy, and sisters too
The love you have for me
Is the love I have for you

Always with you!
Carleigh

Beautiful Holly....

Thank you so much for your desire to help support Sufficient Grace Ministries through the benefits your family is hosting. I am humbled and blessed by your generosity. We are planning some fundraisers right now for this summer. Fundraising is not my favorite part of the ministry...but as we grow and seek to reach out to more families, it has become necessary. God has always been faithful to provide through the generosity of others. And we are so grateful.

Thank you so much, sweet friend!!!

Blessings,
Kelly

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Ephesians 4:29
