When We All Get To Heaven

Shared by Selena Lawson on November 30, 2010

Sing the wondrous love of Jesus;
Sing his mercy and his grace.
In the mansions bright and blessed
He'll prepare for us a place.

While we walk the pilgrim pathway
Clouds will overspread the sky
But when travlin days are over
Not a shadow not a sigh

When we all get to heaven,
What a day of rejoicing that will be!
When we all see Jesus,
We'll sing and shout the victory!

Onward to the prize before us!
Soon his beauty we'll behold;
Soon the pearly gates will open;
We shall tread the streets of gold.

When we all get to heaven,
What a day of rejoicing that will be!
When we all see Jesus,
We'll sing and shout the victory!

Grandfather i never met...

Shared by Chris Norwood on November 29, 2010

Its been 23yrs since you been gone. I been here for 19 of them. I wish i got to meet you. I tlk to people all the time and everyone tells me you where a good man. Days go by when i sit and think about how things would be with you here with me. How i would be helping you and dad working on trucks and bulldozers and hanging out havin fun with my granddad. There is not a day that goes by when i sit and think about you and how different our family would be today if you were still here with us today. Dad and I tlk about you all the time he tells me about all the good times ya'll had together and times that were not so good, but all were good memories made with you. I wish i could have seen your face and made memories of my own with you. I know your home and i know some day i will be coming home to stay with you. You will always be in my heart forever and always.

Love You Grandson,

Chris

R.I.P Papa Jimmy you will never be forgotten

Spending Christmas with Jesus Christ

Shared by Selena Lawson on November 10, 2010

 

I see the countless Christmas trees
Around the world below,
With tiny lights like heaven's stars
Reflecting in the snow.

The sight is so spectacular
Please wipe away that tear
For I'm spending Christmas
With Jesus Christ this year.

I hear the many Christmas songs
That people hold so dear
But earthly music can't compare
With the Christmas choir up here.

I have no words to tell you
The joy their voices bring
For it's beyond description
To hear the angels sing.

I know how much you miss me,
Trust God and have no fear
For I'm spending Christmas
With Jesus Christ this year.

I can't tell you of the splendor
Or the peace here in this place.
Can you imagine Christmas
With our Savior, face to face?

May God uplift your spirit
As I tell Him of your love
Then pray for one another
As you lift your eyes above.

So let your hearts be joyful
And let your spirits sing
For I'm spending Christmas in Heaven
And I'm walking with the king!

IF TEARS COULD BUILD A STAIRWAY

Shared by Selena Lawson on November 10, 2010

IF TEARS COULD BUILD A STAIRWAY

AND MEMORIES WERE A LANE

WE WOULD WALK RIGHT UP TO HEAVEN

AND BRING YOU BACK AGAIN

NO FAREWELL WORDS WERE SPOKEN

NO TIME TO SAY GOODBYE

YOU WERE GONE BEFORE WE KNEW IT

AND ONLY GOD KNOWS WHY

OUR HEARTS STILL ACHE IN SADNESS

AND SECRET TEARS STILL FLOW

WHAT IT MEANT TO LOSE YOU

NO ONE CAN EVER KNOW

BUT NOW WE KNOW YOU WANT US

TO MOURN NO MORE

TO REMEMBER ALL THE HAPPY TIMES

LIFE STILL HAS MUCH IN STORE

SINCE YOU'LL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN

WE PLEDGE TO YOU TODAY

A HALLOWED PLACE WITHIN OUR HEARTS

IS WHERE YOU'LL ALWAYS STAY....

REMEMBER ME!!!

Shared by Selena Lawson on November 10, 2010

REMEMBER ME WITH SMILES AND LAUGHTER.

FOR THAT'S THE WAY I'LL REMEMBER YOU ALL.

IF YOU CAN ONLY REMEMBER ME WITH TEARS,

THEN DON'T REMEMBER ME AT ALL......
