Happy 5th Birthday, Sugar:')


No lengthy posts today, just thoughts of how much fun Tarah's having in heaven on her birthday, and her favorite hymn:). Happy birthday, Peanut. We miss you, but I know you're "there within His arms to rest." Well, you're probably not resting (she's probably dancing her little feet off and talking everyone's ears off), but you know;).

"I Am Jesus; Little Lamb"

by Henrietta L. von Hayn, 1724-1782

1. I am Jesus' little lamb,
Ever glad at heart I am;
For my Shepherd gently guides me,
Knows my need, and well provides me,
Loves me every day the same,
Even calls me by my name.

2. Day by day, at home, away,
Jesus is my Staff and Stay.
When I hunger, Jesus feeds me,
Into pleasant pastures leads me;
When I thirst, He bids me go
Where the quiet waters flow.

3. Who so happy as I am,
Even now the Shepherd's lamb?
And when my short life is ended,
By His angel host attended,
He shall fold me to His breast,
There within His arms to rest.
