If my time is up, it’s okay. I know where I am going. There will be no funeral. My volunteer work and friendships will be memorial enough. I want everyone to continue to be happy and have good times. There is no percentage for grief and sadness. A burst of sunshine will show my love and that I am not far away.

And a joyful sound. “It is no secret” what God can do. What he has done for others, he will do for you. With arms wide open, He’ll welcome you. It is no secret what God can do. – Written by Stuart Hamblem.
