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.
A Little Something…

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.
beautiful… the kids and I love you all and Jude.
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!
Thank you for popping over!
