SAFELY HOME

I am home in heaven, dear ones;
Oh so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.
All the pain and grief is over,
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in heaven at last.
Did you wonder why I so calmly
Trod the valley of the shade?
Oh! but Jesus's love illumined
Every dark and fearful glade.
And He came Himself to meet me
In that way so hard to tread,
And with Jesus' arm to lean on,
Could I have one doubt or dread?
Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still;
Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
Pray to trust our Father's Will.
There is work still waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now, while life remaineth
You shall rest in Jesus' land.
When that work is all completed
He will gently call you home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you come

My little children, let us not love in word, 
neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
1st John 3:18

And Jacob served seven years for Rachel;
and they seemed unto him but a few days, 
for the love he had to her.
				Genesis 29:20

LOVE

Love is what happens

When you happen to someone else.

You give your hand,

You give your heart,

You give yourself

From the very start.

I Am Not There
Do not stand by my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle Autumn rain.
When you awake in the morning hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starshine at night.
Do not stand by my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die.
*********
And now abideth faith, hope, love,
these three;  but the greatest of these is love.
1st Corinthians 13:13
*********
Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of 
God; and every one that loveth is born of God,
and knoweth God.
1John 4:7 
...for neither time, nor distance, nor death itself can touch a love that endures forever....
