To reach the nations
With leaves of healing
Planted beside the River
Of Life in Heaven’s Paradise
Bearing twelve fruits for Overcomers
Who will dwell in the New Jerusalem
Providing supernatural provision
As they eat eternally from its abundant supply
Observe then, and believe this wonderful truth
The Tree of Life
Can be for you
Accept Christ and

The old has gone,
And the new has come.
In gladness the past go, grasp
The future and run!
Love! Mine to receive
Come to earth
As a babe born in a manger.
Jesus Christ, God’s Son!

For my dear family.
This makes me pause to ponder
Upon the first Christmas gift,
Who was wrapped in swaddling clothes.
God’s ultimate present to mankind
Is still available to be received.

Death visited last night
It took the body of someone I knew
His earthly tent is now empty
But his spirit lives someplace new
There’s a heavenly mansion above
That Jesus prepared and took him to
Where he’ll dwell forever in peace
Because he believed what was true
We all can join him there
And have our mansion too
We just need to believe and receive
What Jesus did for me and you

In memory of Herman (Rock) Kunneman, a brother in Christ, and former brother-in-law on earth.
In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. –Jesus (John 14:2,3)
For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. (2 Corinthians 5:1)
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16 )
Every morning I get to say,
“Hello” to a brand new day.
Each sun rise gives me the chance,
To greet a new happenstance.
“Welcome daybreak!” You offer me,
A brand new opportunity,
To start afresh and create anew,
“I am so glad to receive you!”
