Heaven Retaineth Now Our Treasure

I haven't been blogging much lately, as I've been a busy bee working on Lily's scrapbook! I am so close to being done (with her pregnancy scrapbook) and can't wait to share it! :)

I do want to share something... A friend of mine shared this beautiful poem that she saw inscribed on a headstone. I searched the words and discovered it was a common poem in the 19th and 20th centuries. It reminds me of my sweet girl...

"Heaven retaineth now our treasure
Earth the lonely casket keeps
And the sunbeams long to linger
Where our darling Lily sleeps."
