If you could see me now you would understand why I’m no longer there. Remember my spirit that is the real me because I’m still very much alive. I’ve just been set free, OH, if you could only see! I have beheld our Father’s face and I’ve touched my Savior’s hand. All of Heaven’s angels rejoiced as I entered the promised land. Beyond the gates of pearl I’ve walked on the golden streets. I’ve touched the walls of jasper and dipped my foot in the crystal sea. The beauty is beyond words and nothing could compare. I’ve even seen your mansion and someday I’ll meet you there. Let Jesus be your guide because His Word will show you the way! So please don’t cry because we will meet again someday. By Patsy Stambaugh Deskins
