Angels Fly Home

Much of what I write is personal and close to my heart in so many ways. I have written about various subjects, good, bad, family, the service of men and women in the military, as well as first responders; but I felt God placing on my heart to speak of a little girl whom I did not know personally, but believe so much that when a little innocent life is over, they become “Angels that Fly Home”.

God gives us our children for a little while, a long while, we just never know when they will be called home, but they are not ours to keep. Whenever I read about the passing of a child, I feel the loss and sadness that must be in the hearts of their parents, and family.

I look at death in a different way than many, meaning, that we are all going to leave this earth one day and whenever a little one is called home too early, I place their little souls in my daily prayers, and I find myself hoping that where they are, I too will be someday, in Heaven with all the angels such as these innocent souls.

Pinterest is a place where so many things are posted for so many different reasons, that is where I saw Amelie and her story. Her name was Amelie “LuLu”, and she was only 6 years old. She passed away July 1, 2017. Being a grandmother and having a granddaughter who will turn 5 in October, close to little Amelie’s age, and not being able to see her, I just can’t imagine the permanent loss. This 4th of July is not a celebration for this family.

I would ask that who ever reads this article, short as it is that you keep little “Amelie” in your prayers as she makes her way home, an Angel entering Heaven.

  1. Dear Nightingale, you are so right in stating that our children are not ours. They are all “on loan” from God who is their true father. When such a little one such as Lulu is called home to Him it is a source of sadness and heartbreak for her family. We are all in the land of the dying and yes all of us will someday according to God’s plan be called home to the land of the living. If we have kept the faith, we will dance with the angels where our hearts will only know true joy! Lulu will be there to greet her family members and the music and laughter will start.

  2. Losing a child is devastating. Whether through illness or accident it makes no sense and it is sad for family and friends. They get to go to their heavenly home. That’s at least a beautiful alternative to Earth.
