Let the Children Come to Me
One time Jesus was visiing in a town.
There were a lot of people crowded around.
The people were asking questions.
Jesus was teaching them.
Then, the mothers started to bring their children up to Jesus.
The mothers wanted Jesus to touch their children.
The apostles said to the mothers, "Do not bring your children up here. Jesus is busy. He is teaching us. Keep the children away. Don't let them bother Jesus"
When Jesus heard this, he was very displeased with his apostles.
He said to the apostles, " Do not keep the children away. Bring the children to me."
The apostles did as Jesus asked.
The children walked up to Jesus.
Jesus took the children and held them in his arms.
Then he put his hands on the children and blessed them.
We believe this was Gods way of telling us Owen would go to heaven.
Also this is something I wrote in honor of my cousin
My cousins life was an insperation to me. It taught me how me how to love, and let go. I will always remeber him and never forget him. He was my hero, and I will always have him in my heart. Every day that goes by is another day passes that I don't get to see his smiling face, and another day till I see him again.
Here is his story, He was born Febuary 7, 2007 and the next day diagnosed with Nuroblastoma, a form of cancer formed in children under five years of age. He under went many treatments, through it all he continued to smile. He was loved by many, especially me. The last time I held him was at the end of May. I wish I would have held him longer, kissed his tiny bald head, and played with his tiny hands. I would do anything, even reach my arms up to the sky to bring him back. He had the best mommy and daddy in the world. It makes me so sad to think how they must be feeling. He was such a precious treasure to me. I loved him so much. Owen gained his wings on June 17, 2007. At the tender age of four months. His life was short, but it was filled with nothing but pure love. His favorite song was Kookaburra. The lyrics are below.
Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree Merry, merry king of the bush is he Laugh, Kookaburra! Laugh, Kookaburra! Gay your life must be
Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree Eating all the gum drops he can see Stop, Kookaburra! Stop, Kookaburra! Leave some there for me!
Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree Counting all the monkeys he can see Stop, Kookaburra! Stop, Kookaburra! That's not a monkey that's me
Kookaburra sits on a rusty nail Gets a boo-boo in his tail Cry, Kookaburra! Cry, kookaburra! Oh how life can be!
That is how his life was. He somehow had a smile throughout his treatmeants and life. I was only his cousin, but in our family our cousins are like our sister or brothers. He lost his precious life, on June 17, 2007. He was an insperation to everyone he knew. We loved him more than anything. We firmly believe in the saying, "You are not truely dead until you are forgotten." Owen will never be dead. He was an angel on earth, and now in heaven. At his funeral service there was a recording of You are my sunshine, and that is what Owen was he was our little sunshine. I will always remeber my precious angel.
