You are Mine

Blaiser made his First Holy Communion a week ago. His heart was ready for Jesus. He counted down the days like it was Christmas.

The whole family came to support him. He felt like a superstar. Mimi and Papa Clark, his godparents, sat with him.

It was a bittersweet day, as Bishop Kane was going to baptize Lily at the mass. Our hearts were heavy, missing her.

The Eucharist gives strength. May it always sustain you, Blaise, as we never know what lies ahead.

There was one song from Lily's funeral that was also sung at Blaise's communion.

Do not be afraid I am with you
I have called you each by name
Come and follow me
I will lead you home
I love you and you are mine

(Lily receiving her blessing in the hospital from Fr. Joe)
