A Little Something…

if life is a larger, later thing, what left this perfect
child-size hole? what nameless wonder wrought
such joy, such sorrow in so short a time, unseen?
tiny saint — a soul unstained by flesh and blood,
a heart too big for a bone cage — we feel your
flutter, little one, and rejoice to know a piece
of this love has found heaven.

  1. Jim, this is beautiful. I couldn't say the words when we called after we got home, but I think of Jude as our guardian angel, spending Christmas with Jesus, and waiting with open arms to welcome us when it's our time. It's nice to know that we have a little cheerleader up there, encouraging us when times are tough and rejoicing with us when times are good.


  2. Thanks Jim for the prayers.

    Your writing about baby Jude was well done and a fitting tribute to the child who was human from inception!

    My heartfelt prayers go out to you, Jodi, and Jude's brothers and sister!
