The Mountain
Today I climbed a mountain, Every step I take with care; And when I reached the summit; I discovered God was there.
I heard Him in the rushing wind, I saw Him in the sky,
I watched His artistry at work As white clouds drifted by.
Ifelt His touch as sunbeams bright Fell warm upon myface;
I gazed in wonder at His words, Each in its proper place.
The trees, the grass, the lofty heights, The rocks so rough and steep, The summit of the hillside and The valley dark and deep.
The shadows and the sunlight Making patterns ever new. Yes, all these wonders I could see
As I beheld the view!
My heart wasfilledwith gratitude As I was standing there;
The wealth of love within my soul Made me a millionaire.
When trials and troubles seem tofall Like raindropsfrom above,
Come with me to a mountain top Andfind a new Gods love!

It was an early afternoon breeze, God was making His rounds. In the midst of His roll calling, He came across <Efiza6etfi ^fsons gold plated name. He stopped hurriedly and removed the name from the roster. He beckoned His angels to place her name of the roll.

To John, Gladys, Henry, and Linda

To Those I Love, And Those Who Loved Me

When I am gone, release me, let me go.

I have so many things to see and do.

You must not tie yourself to me with tears,

Be happy that we had so many years.

\ j

/ gave you my love - you can only guess

I j

How much you gave me in happiness.

/ thank you for the love you each have shown

But now it is time I traveled on alone.

So grieve awhilefor me, ifgrieve you must,

Then let your griefbe comforted by trust.

Its onlyfor a while that we must part.

So bless the memories within your heart.

I wont befar awayfor life goes on.

So ifyou need me. call and 1 will come.

Though you cant see me or touch me, Ill be near

And ifyou listen with your heart, you will hear,

All ofmy love aroundyou, soft and clear.

And then, when you must come this way alone,

Ill greet you with a smile and a "welcome home".

I will always cherish the moments and times we had!
Love Your Mom, Elizabeth

Dont Look Back To Yesterday
Dont look back to yesterday, For yesterdays are gone.
Look to today with a peaceful heart As each moment you carry on.
Take Gods hand as He leads you
On each day you start a new. Walk with Him and talk with Him
He wants to be with you.
Dont look back to yesterday
For yesterdays have past Look to today with a peaceful mind
With a spiritual thought to last. Follow God as He takes you
Through each moment one by one.
Pray to Him and say to Him
"Lord, Let thy will be done."
