Remembering Erin



It's been nearly a year since she went to Jesus. Her family still grieves her loss but rejoices that her life made a difference and that she is spending eternity with Jesus. My heart is breaking for them as I can't imagine the depth of their pain. Please lift them up this week.

ANGEL(Mandee Radford)

Fly home little nightingale

Fly home and rest

You gave your allYou gave all your best

You blazed with beauty like an autumn mountainside

You lost your leaves and ran out of time,

You ran out of time

You left us dark down here but the sunset burns bright

You flew to Jesus up there

Now there’s one more angel in heaven tonight,

Angel in heaven tonight


I don’t mourn for you

I grieve for us

‘Cause you’ve gained everything

But you is what we’ve lost

The springtime’s here and the flowers are in bloom

But it’s a gray season ‘cause we don’t have you,

We don’t have you


You left us dark down here but the sunset burns bright

You flew to Jesus up there

Now there’s one more angel in heaven tonight,

Angel in heaven


Tonight, every moment is marked with your absence

And every tear that falls falls for your lingering presence

I feel like you’ll walk through the door

I smell you on all of your clothes

I curse the day my memory lets you go

My angel, my angel, angel, my angel


You left us dark down here but the sunset burns bright

You flew to Jesus up there

Now there’s one more angel in heaven tonight,

You left us dark down here but the sunset burns bright

You flew to Jesus up there

Now there’s one more angel in heaven tonight,

Angel in heaven tonight

Fly home little nightingale, fly home and rest

A friend of mine at church was one of Erin's teachers and just yesterday I ran across some prayer request notes from last year that mentioned Erin and her family...how ironic to stumble upon your blog today and be reminded of them again. Will definitely say prayers for those who still feel the pain of her loss.

The news still seems recent to me. It is hard to believe it's been almost a year...
