Looking down on a congregation gathered to give thanks for a precious life.

Zoe Blacklock was given just four years on this earth and was laid to rest on Friday.

She’s gone ahead to a place with no more tears, and no more pain.

We prayed earnestly for her healing, but it was not to be.

Her Mum and Dad, and sister Carys are left behind to carry on.

In the service they shared a lovely story about a bug that became a dargonfly, who promised to come back.

Once she became a dragonfly there was no way back,she simply had to wait until the others climbed up the stalks and they too entered a new dimension.

It was a lovely analogy of how some dear saints go on before, and that one day we’ll all be united before the one who was “a man of sorrows, and aquainted with grief”.

1Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?

2For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

3He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

4Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

Isaiah 53:1-4

Jesus will have centre stage, but in heaven we’ll be united in joy.

Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

1 Corinthians 2:9

  1. It is especially heart-wrenching when a child dies.
