In Memory of Samuel

For God commands the angels  to guard you in all your ways.

With their hands they shall support you,lest you strike your foot against a stone.

Matthew 18:10


"See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father.



"See, I am sending an angel before you, to guard you on the way and bring you to the place I have prepared
Exodus 23:20-23


In Memory of Samuel Carroll, 3 years old, gone to be with the Lord last week.

So sweet, Sandra. Indeed, Samuel is in the arms of our Lord as well as his grandmother who loved him dearly.

Carole said...

What a wonderful tribute..... perfect verses.
Jeanne would be very pleased.

You did good Sandra.
Madeline and I have knowledge of Samuel. Your tribute realy tugs at my heart, "tears". The only comfort in this is knowing He is in the palm of our Savior's hand. In the arms of his Grand Mother Jean. Jeane loved him so much.

Madeline said...

Sandra, this is so beautifully done. Perfect in every way. Yes, as believers we know that Samuel is in Paradise. That is the only way we can get through losing him. Jeanne, would indeed be pleased with your beautiful tribute. So would his great grandmother Peggy. I love you and thank you for doing this for Samuel.

A beautiful tribute to a special little boy.

It's sad that such a young life has been lost, but this is a beautiful tribute.

Ginny said...

So sorry,Sandra. even though I didn't know him, it is heart breaking to see the little children go. We know they are innocent and happy in heaven, but those they leave behind are broken hearted...a life still full of wonder and not even begun.

Ann Nichols said...

Only three... So very very sad. For his parents, for his friends, for the life we yearn to see the young who leave us early live. But the important thing is He LIVED and is still alive and always will be in eternity; something that is forever.
But my heart goes out to his parents and all others who miss him so in a very personal way.
What a lovely post, Sandra. A lovely tribute to that young little person named Samuel Caroll.
Blessings,
Ann

Hearing of the death of a child is always so sad. Everyone loves a child and those left behind grieve so deeply and miss them so much. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and loved ones.

I'm not sure who Samuel was - but I know he doesn't hurt anymore and he IS with the Lord.

Well though I don't know them..three years old is awfully young!! My heart goes out to his family! What a beautiful tribute Sandra- them images and verse are truly lovely:)

Ann said...

So sad to hear of a life ending so soon. My thoughts and prayers go to the family and friends of little Samuel. May he rest in peace.

What a nice tribute to Little Samuel. I think it's harder to accept when a young child dies. As my mother said after my brother died, "I'm supposed to die FIRST"... I'm sure that Samuel is sitting up there with God enjoying himself--but his family here on earth really miss him.
Hugs,
Betsy
