This morning we celebrated Mothers of all kinds in a special breakfast and reflection. Thank you very much to everyone who made this day a success – our tour guides, musicians, Parent’s Association and our mothers. We wish families a very happy Mother’s day this Sunday.
Below is a reflection from today’s service and photos of mums and sons from today.
A Child’s Angel.
Once upon a time there was a child ready to be born.
So one day the child asked God:
They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow
But how am I to live there
Being so small and helpless?
Among many angels, I chose one for you.
She will be waiting for you
And take care of you.
But tell me, here in Heaven,
I don’t do anything else but sing and
Smile, that’s enough for me to be happy.
Your angel will sing for you and
Will smile for you every day.
And you will feel your angel’s love and be happy.
And how am I going to be able
To understand when people talk to me
If I don’t know the language that they use?
Your angel will tell you the
Most beautiful and sweet words you will
Ever hear, and with much patience and care,
Your angel will teach you how to speak.
And what am I going to do
when I want to talk to you?
Your angel will place your hands together
And will teach you how to pray.
I’ve heard that on earth there may be troubling things.
Who will protect me?
Your angel will defend you
Even if it means risking its life.
But I will always be sad because
I will not see you anymore.
Your angel will always talk to you about me
And teach you the way
For you to come back to me,
Even though I will always be next to you.
At that moment there was much peace in Heaven,
But voices from earth could already be heard,
And the child in a hurry asked softly:
Oh God, if I am about to leave now,
Please tell me my angel’s name.
Your angel’s name is of no importance,
You will call your angel:
