~~ THE LAMB ~~
Little Lamb, who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee?
Gave thee life and bid thee feed,
By the stream and o're the mead;
Gave thee clothing of delight,
Softest clothing, wooly, bright;
Gave thee such a tender voice,
Making all the vales rejoice?
Little Lamb, who made thee?

Dost thou know who made thee?
Little Lamb, I'll tell thee,
Little Lamb, I'll tell thee;
He is called by thy name,
For he calls himself a Lamb.
He is meek and he is mild;
He became a little child.
I am child and thou a lamb.

We are called by his name.
Little Lamb, God bless thee!
Little Lamb, God bless thee!

Lisa, baby, you are remembered. I will love you till the end of time.

Forever, Your loving mom

Lisa was my youngest child. Her nickname was "Little Lamb,"
because of a stuffed lamb she loved as a child. She held onto that lamb
until it was worn smooth with love like the Velveteen Rabbit.
On one side of her grave marker is an engraving of Christ cradling a lamb
to His breast. I know that is just what He did the minute
she crossed over...Held my Little Lamb to His loving breast.

In the Hebrew religion the lamb's life was a sacrifice to God.
To the Christians Jesus became the sacrificial lamb.
The lamb became an Easter lamb, a symbol of Jesus.
In earlier days, shepherds believed it was good luck to meet a lamb,
particularly during the Easter season.

If you looked from your window on Easter Sunday and saw a lamb,
you could expect even better luck, especially if its nose
happened to be pointed toward your house.

~ Edna Barth ~

That time runs out before one's life's work is completed by no means
makes it worthless. The fragmentary quality of life does not detract from its
meaning. It is not from the length of its span that we can ever
draw conclusions as to life's meaningfulness. We cannot, after all,
judge a biography by its length, by the number of pages in it;
We must judge by the richness of its contents.

The exuberant life of one who has died young certainly has more
content and meaning than the existence of some long-lived dullard.

Sometimes the "unfinisheds" are among the most beautiful symphonies."

By Viktor Frankl
"The Doctor and the Soul"

I was blessed to have met a lamb.
Her little nose pointed its way not just toward my house,
but toward the deepest part of my heart and soul.

Come with me and let me share the story of...
