Good-bye Jordan

We said good-bye to Jordan today. We put together a nice service today to say good-bye. The pastor led the service and added some great words and scriptures, we read some poems and played a couple songs. It was the perfect way to say good-bye.

I'd like to share the music and poetry that we added to our service so that you can share in how we said good-bye.


"Glory Baby" by Watermark

A Snowdrop

The world may never notice
If a snowdrop doesn’t bloom,
Or even pause to wonder
If the petals fall too soon,
But every life that ever forms
Or ever comes to be,
Touches the world in some small way
For all eternity.

The little one we longed for
Was here and swiftly gone,
But the love that was then planted
Is a light that still shines on,
And though our arms are empty
Our hearts know what to do,
With every beat within our hearts
We say that we love you.

Precious Child

In my dreams, you are alive and well
Precious child, precious child
In my mind, I see you clear as a bell
Precious child, precious child

In my soul, there is a hole
That can never be filled
But in my heart, there is hope
'Cause you are with me still

In my heart, you live on
Always there never gone
Precious child, you left too soon
Tho' it may be true that we're apart
You will live forever... in my heart

In my plans, I was the first to leave
Precious child, precious child
But in this world, I was left here to grieve
Precious child, my precious child

In my soul, there is a hole
That can never be filled
But in my heart there is hope
And you are with me still

In my heart you live on
Always there, never gone
Precious child, you left too soon,
Tho' it may be true that we're apart
You will live forever... in my heart

God knows I want to hold you,
See you, touch you
And maybe there's a heaven
And someday I will again
Please know you are not forgotten until then

In my heart you live on
Always there never gone
Precious child, you left too soon
Tho' it may be true that we're apart
You will live forever... in my heart
