I thought you might enjoy a few pictures of Micah. Tomorrow we will celebrate 9 years since he went to be with the Lord.
Nine years ago today, I said goodbye to Micah for the last time on this earth. I would have never guessed after he seemed to be doing better on that Friday. He ate more than usual and went to another section of the hospital to hear a band, but the next day we received a call that Micah had gone to be with the Lord. Yes! Gone to be with the Lord! Though I said goodbye to him for now, I will see him again in heaven, and that gives me great joy and hope. However, even though I long to see Micah again, when I get to heaven, the most wonderful One I will see, is Jesus.
As Paul said in 1 Corinthians 13:12, “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face.” This should make Christians rejoice greatly; yes, we will see other Christians again, but more than that, we will see our Savior. As you celebrate Christmas this year, please remember Jesus.
I started this poem one day when I was tired of doing science. Ever so often I would add another line or stanza till I finished it .
Stephen Robert Claire
Dirty, messed-up trouser pair;
His name was Stephen Robert Claire.
With dark brown, wavy hair,
He had an old chestnut mustang mare.
Stephen Robert Claire did ride
On the back, near mustang’s hide.
Stern-faced, English-capped, always tried,
And told the truth till the day he died.
He was the fastest rider nearby,
He rode in the lowlands and the high.
Stephen Robert Claire rode without a lie;
Well-dressed but never wore a tie.
Across the fields, he brought the cattle;
He never lost in the cow-horse battle:
Watch chain did jingle, and spurs did rattle.
This was Stephen Robert Claire in his Saddle.
