Dancing With Angels

I will be making my own video for my daughter, Julianne, who for 22 years was confined to a wheelchair and is now "Dancing With Angels."  My sister found this video on YouTube, and I had to share it with you all.



About 10pm Saturday evening my wife was sitting with my daughter and daughter was looking toward the ceiling with her eyes moving every which way...  my wife asked, "What are you looking at?"  Daughter responded, "I'm watching the angels!"  When asked what they looked like, she responded, "I don't know..."  

Eternal rest grant unto her, oh Lord.   May her soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, rest in peace.

Amen.

As I awoke this morning, this poem came to me...

Of the Judgment His Holy Word says no man shall know the hour,
But that time has come for our Little Flower.
Her life endured through many trials,
But to all who knew her, she provided smiles.
She saw the world from within her chair,
Now she’s dancing with angels - without a care.
We were given her for a time according to His plan,
God still watches over our Julianne.


This is being put on her marker:
She saw the world from within her chair,
Now she’s dancing with angels - without a care.

  1. Scott,

    I am deeply sorry for your loss. I will pray for you and your family. My daughter is six and I don't know how I'd be able to get through the day if anything would happen to her.

    May the Lord lead you through this troubling time and may your daughter be lead into His open arms.
