Today, I want to share this poem for my dear friend Ann whose Mom passed away today from cancer. May God wrap his arms around her and her family during this time and comfort them.


I am home in heaven, dear ones,
All's so happy, all's so bright.
There's perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.

All the pain and grief are over,
Every restless tossing passed.
I am now at peace, forever,
Safetly home in heaven at last.

Did you wonder how I calmly
Trod the Valley of the Shade?
Oh, but Jesus' love illumined
Every dark and fearful glade.

There is still work waiting for you,
So you must not idle stand
Do your work while life remains,
You shall rest in Jesus' land.

When that work is completed,
He will gently call you home,
Oh, the rapture of the meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you come

Beyond the door there’s peace I’m sure

And I know there’ll be no more tears in heaven...
