I am a Child of God

I've been thinking a lot about life and about our little Eve lately.  She is always in my heart and wonder how different things would have been if she were still here.  I know that I have grown so much in so many ways since she left.  She will always have a piece of my heart.  I came across these verses the other day and couldn't help but think of our little girl in the arms of  her Father in Heaven.  

This is a song that is written for children who have gone back to our Loving Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. It goes to the song, I Am a Child of God.

I am a child of God and He has called me home.
My earthly journey's through
but still, I do not walk alone.
He leads me, guides me, walks beside me,
helps me find the way.
He welcomed me with open arms.
I live with Him today.

I am a child of God and I have gone ahead.
My earthly life was brief but oh,
such peace and love you gave.
You loved me, held me,
stood beside me and though I cannot stay.
You gave me much to help me
and I live with Him today.

I am a child of God and I will wait for you.
Celestial glory shall be ours,
if you can but endure.
I'll lead you, guide you, walk beside you.
Help you find the way.
I'll welcome you with open arms,
One bright Celestial day.

I LOVE chocolate milk!

I LOVE chocolate milk!  Doesn't everyone?  At night time, I usually cuddle my little Claire as she is getting ready for bed.  I sit in my rocker and get to snuggle her as she drinks her night time bottle before bed.  I love to whisper to her how much I love her and she nods and sucks her bottle down.  The other night as I was whispering "I Love You Claire Bear,"  she paused for a second took her bottle out for the first time after I said this, and says, "I love Chocolate Milk."  Now I know what she is really thinking when she nods.  Gotta love my little Claire Bear!
