In Memory of Little Jasper

My daughter has been down on a farm for the week with her best friend. I called her the other day to see how she was, she was ecstatic as she had just seen a little lamb born. It was very tiny and probably premature. My daughter and her friend cared for the little lamb making sure it was getting food. The poor little thing was very dehydrated and didn't have the strength to feed from it's Mummy.
I called last night to see how the little one was doing - "Jasper" passed away today Mummy".
my daughters voice shakily spoke into the phone - " he was drinking and then took his last breath and closed his eyes - we buried him and gave him a funeral. "

The lessons of life seen from fresh eyes. R.I.P. Little Jasper.

Isaiah 40:11) He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.

  1. Oh that is so sad for your daughter and sorry the little lamb did not make it.
    As you say the lessons of life, sometimes they are not always good.
    I hope that she is feeling better.
    Enjoy your weekend

    Hugs
