Pebbles is quite a wonderful lady... Will be nice to see her again :) I saved all the posts she left on my page.
I really like that poem. Thank you for sharing that. Lately I have been sort of dumb founded because I keep considering how God will make all things no and the former things will not be brought to mind. It is just so intense all of this! But the way his poem expressed it through the touch of the hand was comforting and an interesting little journey!

The Lord Is My Strength

When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your love, O Lord, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul. The Lord has become my fortress, and my God the rock in whom I take refuge. Psalms 94:18-19, 22

Heaven
It's something that happened so quickly!
Like a great rushing wind I can't see,
Strong arms are holding me close now
As they gently pull and guide me.
But there's something that tells me to go,
There's a longing that tells me to stay.
Then a voice says, "Don't look back, I am with you,"
Now I know that I have to obey.

As I start to see things all around me,
I notice a great shining light.
Our pathway is guarded by ---ANGELS!
Shining bright on the left and the right!
Somehow this place seems familiar,
Almost like I've been here before!
Then all at once I am standing
In front of a big golden door!

On the right is a man at an altar,
With a really big book in His hand!
He's smiling and says, "Great to see you!
Well done, you can come right on in!"
Then it hit me! I haven't been dreaming!
This is real! This is really "THE GATE!"
Then it opened and the "arms" led me onward.
I'm going to see Jesus, I can't wait!

When I look at the light, it is brilliant,
There is Jesus right there on His throne!
Then I fall at His feet, and He lifts me up!
Says, "You're healed now, my child! Welcome home!!
Your family is waiting to see you,
Your friends want to welcome you, too.
You can see your new home here in Heaven!
It's all out there waiting for you!"

"I know you're concerned for your family,
The guilt that you feel deep inside,
For leaving them all so abruptly,
With no chance of saying, 'Goodbye.'
There's no sorrow or grieving in Heaven,
And so with a touch of My hand,
All your memories will be nothing but good ones.
I'll make sure they are nothing but grand!"

"Since I brought you here without warning,
If there's something that you'd like to say,
You can tell their guardian angel,
And he'll give them your message today.
He can't talk to them directly,
He'll just impress what you say in their hearts.
It will help give them peace and contentment,
Give them strength while you are apart."

I will miss your emails. I wish there was a way of you sending emails from heaven but this one thing I know I will one day see you.
