One Day the Lord chose this beautiful child to come home to him.
When she got there he gave her butterfly wings.
Now the child in all her innocence looked up at the Lord and said....
Lord all the big angels have big wings...how come I can"t have big wings too?
He said to her in all his infinate wisdom,
My Child, You are so small...
If I give you big wings then you shall surely float away!
So I gave you butterfly wings so you can dance
and float as lightly and gracefully as a beautiful butterfly.
She smiled accepting the Lords answer and from
that day on the Lord called her Butterfly Wings.
In Loving Memory of Kloie VanHoveln August 28, 2000
When tomorrow starts without me
And I'm not there to see;
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me.
I wish so much you wouldn't cry
The way you did today;
While thinking of the many things
We didn't get to say.
I know how much you love me ...
As much as I love you;
And each time that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me too.
But when tomorrow starts without me
Please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name
and took me by the hand.
She said my place was ready
In heaven far above;
and that I'd have to leave behind,
all those I dearly love.
But as I turned to walk away,
I tear fell from my eye;
For all my life, I'd always thought
I was to young to die.
I had so much to live for,
So much yet to do;
It seemed almost impossible,
That I was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays,
The good ones and the bad;
I thought of all the love we shared,
And all the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday
Just even for awhile,
I'd say goodbye and kiss you
And maybe see you smile.
But then I fully realized
That this could never be;
For emptiness and memories Would take the place of me.
And when I thought of worldly things
I might miss come tomorrow;
I thought of you, and when I did,
My heart was filled with sorrow.
But when I walked through heaven's gates
I felt so much at home;
When God looked down and smiled at me
From His great golden throne.
He said, "This is eternity
And all I've promised you;
Today your life on earth is past,
But here it all starts anew."
"I promise no tomorrow,
But today will always last;
And since each day's the same day,
There's no longing for the past."
"But you have been so faithful,
So trusting and so true;
Though at times you did do things,
You knew you shouldn't do."
"But you have been forgiven
And now at last you're free;
So won't you take my hand
And share my life with me?"
So when tomorrow starts without me,
Don't think we're far apart ...
For every time you think of me,
I'm right here ... in your heart.
uffer the little children to come unto me,
and forbid them not: for of such is the
kingdom of God.
Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive
the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not
- Mark 10:14-15
