1. Restless child. One so young, so full of his person. Uninhibited spirit. Loving and loved. Why, Father?
2. Your servant Hannah: "I prayed for this child; and the Lord hath given me my petition which I asked of him." (I Samuel 1:27)
3. An angel. He had seen an angel in his room. That's what he told them. She believed it a guardian angel. Why, Father?
4. Now he will give his angels charge over thee to keep thee in all thy ways. (Psalm 91:11)
5. The joyous birth. The diabetes. Then the seizures, and now, the young life.
