Is it just me or would you agree that one of the worse things we can see, is a child in distress? It’s even worse when we know there is nothing we can can do to help ease the child’s pain.
I came across the following poem by M.S.Lowndes which was dedicated to children with terminal illnesses. This poem touched me, I hope it also touches you too.
Gifts Of Heaven
Lord you see each precious child
And you care so much for them
For they are special to you Lord
And are the gifts of heaven
Lord you long to soothe their pain
And calm their anxious fears
You hold each one in your loving arms
And you show them that you care
You know what each ones going through
You see the hurt inside
We pray that you will strengthen them
To endure what’s in their lives
So they will know the love of God
And know your saving grace
To know that you will be their friend
Through whatever they may face
So bless the children we ask of Thee
With hope, love and peace
Let them feel your presence Lord
And let their fretting cease.
