I've Made It Home

Sadness fills a lonely, country road A loved one leaves behind her heavy load With courage she endured until the end Heaven gained an angel, the world lost a friend Her strength to endure and run her race Her reward to look upon the Savior's face A wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and brethren Standing on the balcony of her palace in Heaven Reunited with the man of her true love story Hand in hand, basking in God's glory Many hearts broken with such great loss The Jordan River she has forever crossed Today her valleys are left behind No more rough mountains must she climb All her trials and troubles are now defeated Her journey in this life now completed While we mourn, she stands blessed In her eternal home forever to rest Dressed in her robe of white She stands victorious in the fight On the wings of an angel, she took her flight Guiding her home, God's glorious light Our little country road never to be the same This world of affliction and sorrow she overcame If she could speak from Heavens throne Fear not my children, I made it home I am alive, well and so carefree Wipe your tears my loves, do not cry for me Written by: Donetta Harless Thursday, July 28, 2016
