I'm Going Home To Heaven

I’m going home to Heaven;
Don’t you cry for me.
I’ll sleep for a little while,
Then, my dear Lord I shall see.

He won’t wake me too early,
He won’t wake me too late;
He’ll call at the right time
For He has set the date.

On earth I grew so weary,
It was hard to go along;
When I wake to time eternal
I’ll be singing the Victory song.

Please don’t shed tears of sorrow,
For in just a little while
We’ll meet again in Heaven,
So just think of me and smile.

For I’m going home to Heaven,
Don’t you cry for me!

    Ah. I worked with people who had Alzheimers/dementia. So many people put them aside and say they are uncommunicable. I don’t believethat and I have seen some very bad cases. A twinkle in the eye was what I always watched for, and if I captured it, I knew I had done my job. x

  • That is so true,one of ma’s sons was to see her today, she hadn’t seen him for about 8 years, when we told her he was coming to visit she said,“Oh,I haven’t seen him for years”then she could hardly wait for him to get there,and while we were all there she mentioned another of her sons, and asked if he was coming.We all had a wonderful time with her, she just smiled and smiled. :o))))

    God love her! MaeBelle I have a friend who is 101 and lives at home alone. Just recently I felt like writing her a song, she is deaf so all she’ll get are the lyrics but it’s okay. Sweet song for a lucky lady.

  • Thank you Jymmi♥ it is such a blessing when the older folks are able to be in their own homes.Ma sure enjoyed her visit with the 4 of her sons that were to see her today.:o)) God Bless
