A year ago Jerard was in the hospital due to major siezures that left him basically immobile. The last time I ever heard him laugh or saw him smile was a year ago March 6, 2012.
It is amazing a year has almost passed since he died.
He's been in my thoughts more recently. As thankful as I am that he is with Jesus, my momma's heart misses my son.
This hymn often plays through my mind as I think of him.
"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.
