Message From A Loved One

by Joye Atkinson
(Gallatin TN USA)

I know your hearts are heavy & you miss having me there
But I'm with God in heaven where no one has a care
I just shook hands with Moses, I met Job and Daniel too
Now I am enjoying a body that's brand new
It really was amazing when I walked through the gate
I saw the beauty of this place and I could hardly wait
To come into the presence of the Father and the Son
Hearing Him say to me the priceless words "WELL DONE"
Jesus took me by the hand and said I'm so glad you came
Your place is reserved in heaven's choir
Sing praises to My name
You should see my mansion; it's a sight to see
Jesus had it custom built especially for me
I'm having a great time up here so don't be sad & blue
I'm looking forward to the day when I can usher you
Into this very special place where God is on His throne
And we will have the honor to worship Him alone.

Mom, you are a crowned jewel in heaven.

I used this poem for part of my mom's eulogy, because I was with her when she passed. I had a good while of crying, just letting her go. But, within minutes, I had a visual of her running around in heaven from one area to another, telling everyone how strong and beautiful her daughters were, what a loving and caring husband she had and how beautiful her grandchildren were as well as how handsome her sons-in-law were. She did this with so much excitement and joy. I felt at peace that instant, so when I saw this poem, I knew I had to use this in the eulogy.
