Celebrate: Memories of Little Angelina

I remember one time Angelina, my wife and I went to pick up some ice pops from the corner bodega.

Halfway up the block, she paused. We weren’t sure what the problem was. She looked at her hand where she was holding her freezing treat and decided it was too cold to hold, so she passed it back up to us and we strolled away.

It’s simple but it was darn cute.

IF YOU HAVE A MEMORY OF OR WITH ANGELINA, PLEASE POST IT UNDER THIS BLOG POST OR ON HER FACEBOOK PAGE. THANK YOU.

MASTER’S BOUQUET

MASTER’S BOUQUET

The Master walked in His garden
Plucking flowers along the way;
He plucked one of my loved ones,
To add to his bouquet.
My heart at first was broken,
At the loss of one so dear;

But the tears I shed just washed my eyes,
So I saw His way more clear.
My Lord has a need for just this one,
For the pattern He has in mind;
But it’s hard for the rest of us to see
Why we must be left behind.
Perhaps we are not ready to go just yet
We may need to ripen more
To reach the full blown fragrance
My Lord is waiting for.
To each, give forth a fragrance
To each we chance to meet
We should each be trying day by day
To make our fragrance sweet.
So I’m going to try my very best
To be loving and kind each day,
So at last I’ll be counted worthy
To be part of my Master’s Bouquet.
