Into The Everlasting Arms

Baby Ivy died last night.
Over the weekend she had become increasingly poorly.
Last night, at midnight, the nurses called me.
As I held her and prayed with her, the wee darling slipped peacefully from my arms into the "everlasting arms".
It was very special, but heartbreaking.
It hit us all very hard, as Levi had named baby Ivy and had dreams of adopting her.
This morning, Guy & I took her to a lovely mortuary, where she was gently washed, as we watched.
Even in death, New Life affords great dignity to these little ones.
Thank God that this precious little princess did not die without knowing she was loved.
