Poet's Notes

My dear sister,Joann, passed away six years ago. She loved gospel music and all the Gaither videos. She and I would sing and cry watching them. I know she IS having a wonderful time hearing and seeing the ones who now live in Heaven.

My Dear Sister

I recently lost my dear sister, She's now found a brand new home. No darkness of sin or pain enters in, With our loved ones, she's joined round Gods throne. Where Jesus, the light, makes heaven so bright, She'll live for eternity, And when I'm called home, we'll join round Gods throne, Where together we'll always be. Oh! What joy she's having in heaven, Hearing Vestal, Howard, and Glen. Why, there's Jake and George. Oh, what a noise! As they're sing a brand new hymn. With James, Rex, J.D.,and others she loves, As Anthony plays on a new baby grand, She's in heaven, just being in heaven, For,their music goes on with no end. There'll be no darkness in heaven, For Jesus is the light, As each soul joins with him, The worlds darkness grows dim, As the view up ahead shines so bright. When we're welcomed up there There'll be no compare, To the beauty of heavens array. As I walk on this path, toward Jesus, at last, I know I'll see her again some sweet day.

    Thank you, John. You are so right about thanking God for our parents. I prayed to God to let me live to see my children saved and they were, then my 4 grandsons and so far 2 have been saved.Still praying for the other 2.
