SAFELY HOME


With the heavy amounts of snow falling here in Colorado, we hope and pray all of you who must travel will arrive safely home tonight!  There is another trip that we all must take someday…I’m talking about the trip to our Eternal Home.

I found this poem while going through some things.  It is from my father-in-law’s funeral.-anita

***************

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 I so calmly trod the valley of the shade?  Oh, but Jesus’ 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 remains- you shall rest in God’s own 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!-Author Unknown

***************************

We all need God’s presence with us every day…but ESPECIALLY on that day, when we take our final trip!

ARE YOU READY?  If not…ask Jesus to save your soul right now!  He promised He would!
