Sewing Robes In Heaven

Don’t cry for me dear loved ones, I know it seems I’m gone…

But inside of your sweet hearts, I’m continually living on.

My life on earth was precious, and I love each one of you…

But the Lord needed my service, there’s so much up here to do.

I sing with the Angels and teach new saints the songs…

He knew that I was tidy, I keep things where they belong.

I garden, fish, and yodel… just as I did before…

Right now I’m painting a picture, of God’s celestial shore.

I’m busy, busy, busy….some things never change.

One thing about the Kingdom…there aren’t any stains.

So I don’t spend much time cleaning…everything shines like gold.

I’ll see you all again someday…I’ve already started sewing your robes.

Love, Nana
