A letter to an Angel

Dear Angel,

Today is supposedly the day that you will be born.

You were taken straight into the presence of your Father God, and until I reach you in that beautiful place where you now dwell, and will for all eternity, I will not have the privilege of being formally introduced to you.

I’m going to miss that.

I’m going to miss hearing your cry as you would have taken your first breath of this air I live in.

I’m going to miss stroking your soft cheeks and looking intently into your face, and marveling at the beautiful way in which God Almighty created you.

I’m going to miss celebrating your birthdays, rejoicing in your milestones, training you in righteousness, holding your little hand, making you laugh, enjoying your loving gaze into my eyes, and holding you physically close to me when you would need comfort and extra special care.

You have bypassed this world, my sweet and precious baby. By God’s grace and wisdom and mercy, your heart beat its last, and you found yourself instantly in the indescribable, wondrous, and awesome Presence of the God whom I can only see in faith and read words about.

You will never know sorrow, grief, cruelty, and suffering. You were loved enough by Your Heavenly Father that He spared you from this dark, cold and sin-infested world. You have been promoted to the best place without laying your senses on evil, hatred, and painful experiences God never intended anyone to live through.

We said Hello to you briefly with so much joy, gratitude, excitement, and expectation when we found out you were given life… there was so much hope, promise, and blessing in the thought of you joining our family.

Yet, it was ordained that we had to say, ‘Goodbye’. Not forever, but for a brief, several years which will seem as but a moment to you in Heaven… but for us, it will feel like a long, long time to have to live without you physically in our lives. You will remain in our hearts and be an inseparable part of the fabric of our family.

It’s hard for mommy to endure the hardship of saying goodbye to you, but I know and trust that God’s steadfast love to us will comfort us. As you now know better than we ever will on this Earth – His ways are just, and right, and good, and though they sometimes surpass our understanding, we know that He never ever makes mistakes. He is Holy, and we trust in His Sovereign power over all He brings along our path.

Precious, beloved Angel … until we meet…. I will always love you, and you will have a special place in this heart of mine till the day I join you, and eternally beyond.

We rejoice because you will be forever a messenger of God. I love you so much, sweetheart. You are a gift to me, your dad and to our family. We will remember you and miss you dearly.

Keep watching us.

Mom and Dad will always remember the promise of our dear God in Jeremiah 29:11.

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Love,

Your Mom & Dad
