Rainbows would never be rainbows,
if sunshine had never met rain.
No one would ever need comfort,
if there where no sadness and pain,
But life holds both sunshine and showers,
The days aren't all bright and fair--
So look through the showers for the rainbows,
You'll always find hope shining there.
A Grandmother's Prayer
By: Evelyn Green
Lead me out of my fog of despair,
Lord, show me You love me, show me You care.
I need your guidance, in You I trust:
Give me the courage to do what I must.
I'll hide the pain in my heart,
And wipe the tears from my face.
I'd do anything in the world
To take my daughter's place.
To save her the hurt that she's going through,
And give her the peace of mind she's due.
I've been down that road, and the pain can't be measured.
I want for her only memories to be treasured.
Though I don't understand Your wondrous ways,
I thank you Lord, for those fourteen days:
As surely as there is a sun,
You, God, and Bradley were as one.
God's Little Boy
Mommy and Daddy,
Please don't be so sad,
I miss you so much too.
It's beautiful here where I am,
But I worry a lot about you.
I sleep with angels watching me,
there's only love up here...
I'm never lonely or afraid
'cause God's so very near.
I walk with Jesus every day,
He's very kind and sweet.
Don't worry mom and dad,
He holds my hand
When we cross a golden street.
I never cry or hurt myself,
I see Grandpa every day...
I play and laugh and sing alot
and I hear you when you pray.
Please mommy and daddy,
Don't be mad at God
You see, He loves me, too.
And, even though you're not with me
I'm really still with you.
