In That Moment Son


I was there on the day your child was born. You cradled him in your arms and held him close to your heart. The bond of love between you was nothing short of a gift to you….. You looked down into his beautiful eyes and in your heart you thanked Me for your precious Gift. Although you could not see Me, I held you both in my arms in that moment....


You shared laughter and joy and sadness and love. The sun shone, the birds sang and butterflies broke free of their warmth and flew amidst a gentle breeze… and time passed. He ran and played and fell to his knees. and got up again with your loving arms to lift him. You lived in those precious moments; you felt each little footprint as they walked into your heart and on toward life.


You were a gift to each other and in the moments when you were apart, you held him in your memory. He was as real to you there as if he were beside you… so real because he was born to you! And he filled your soul with a love that would remain with you for eternity.


And then the moment came when your life stood still.... you cried out from the depths of your soul. You could not hear Me tell you that I held him. You could not hear Me tell you that I was there in that moment; that I was there to cradle him in My arms and hold him close for you!


 You could not hear Me tell you that just as I held you both when he was born.... I again held you both in that moment when life stood still! That although you may not have been there with him… In That Moment I Held You Both Together In My Arms!!!

And in that moment when I gave you your precious Guardian Angel to watch over you… together We held you for the first time!!
