Poems and Ponderings

Heaven

I’ve set my thoughts on higher things
for soon I’ll leave this earth behind;
the Lord shall take my rotting flesh
and give to me a sinless mind.

Oh, boundless joy- no lustful snares
to hinder me upon my way.
No darkness or night I will fear
for where my Lord dwells is my day.

What makes my blessed heart to sing
and burst with gladness from the core
I will be with God the King
my Savior, Friend forevermore.

Madeleine, This is my all time favorite poem you have written!!! Just think, babes, you & I will spend eternity together with our heavenly Father!!!! OH, what a glorious and blessed thought!!!
BUT, since we are here and it's now....you bring heavenly sunshine into my life. I LOVE our whoda nites in the kitchen, laughing over our "creations"! God is good to me to give me such a sweet granddaughter as you :-D
