Baby Caden Returns to His Home Above

Yesterday, Our sweet baby Caden was laid to rest. Thank you all for your kind and comforting words. It has been a rough last several weeks for our family. I was honored to put together a memory/photo table for Caden's funeral. Everything I did was scrapbook ready for his family.

Caden's blog is linked here.  Click on the title of this post if you would like to read a little more about little Caden's life. The following is a few extra added verses to a song we sing in our church titled I am a Child of God. Caden's parents posted the added verses on his blog. (Author unknown)  The words are beautiful.

I am a child of God and He has called me home.
My earthly journey's through but still, I do not walk alone.
He leads me, guides me, walks beside me, helps me find the way.
He welcomed me with open arms. I live with Him today.

I am a child of God and I have gone ahead.
My earthly life was brief but oh, such peace and love you gave.
You loved me, held me, stood beside me and though I cannot stay.
You gave me much to help me and I live with Him today.

I am a child of God and I will wait for you.
Celestial glory shall be ours, if you can but endure.
I'll lead you, guide you, walk beside you.
Help you find the way.
I'll welcome you with open arms
One bright Celestial day.
