If You Find Yourself Banned On Facebook .. Once upon a time on Facebook, I…
To My Dearest Family ..
To my dearest family, some things I’d like to say.
But first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I’m writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there’s no more tears of sadness. Here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I’m out of sight.
Remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, “I welcome you.
It’s good to have you back again, you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they’ll be here later on”.
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night the day’s chores put to flight,
God and I are closest to you. In the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years,
Because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry. It does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all what God has planned.
If I were to tell you, you wouldn’t understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is over,
I’m closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb,
But together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I’d like it for you too..
That as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who’s in sorrow and pain,
Then you can say to God at night, “My day was not in vain”.
And now I am contented that my life was worthwhile,
Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
Just lend a hand to pick them up, as on your way you go.
When you’re walking down the street and you’ve got me on your mind,
I’m walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it’s time for you to go, from that body to be free,
Remember you’re not going, you’re coming here to me.
I’m Right There In Your Heart ..
When tomorrow starts without me and I’m not here to see,
If the sun should rise and find your eyes filled with tears for me,
I wish so much you wouldn’t cry the way you did today,
While thinking of the many things we didn’t get to say.
I know how much you love me, as much as I love you
And each you think of me, I know you’ll miss me too.
When tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart,
For every time you think of me, I’m right there in your heart.
When I Must Leave You ..
When I must leave you for a little while,
Please do not grieve and shed wild tears
And hug your sorrow to you through the years.
But start out bravely with a gallant smile
And for my sake and in my name
Live on and do all things the same.
Feed not your loneliness on empty days,
But fill each waking hour in useful ways.
Reach out your hand in comfort and in cheer
And I in turn will comfort you and hold you near.
And never, never be afraid to die,
For I am waiting for you in the sky.

Never Borrow Sorrow ..
Deal only with the present,
Never step into tomorrow,
For God asks us just to trust Him
And to never borrow sorrow.
For the future is not ours to know
And it may never be,
So let us live and give our best
And give it lavishly.
For to meet tomorrow’s troubles
Before they are even ours
Is to anticipate the Saviour
And to doubt His all-wise powers.
So let us be content to solve
Our problems one by one,
Asking nothing of tomorrow
Except Thy will be done.
