What will it be like?

🎶🎶What a day that will be when my Jesus I shall see when I look upon His face the One who saved me by His grace. When He takes my by the hand and leads me through the promise land what a day, glorious day that will be.🎶🎶

Tonight at 6:37pm our church lost an incredible lady. She was a prayer warrior and sacrificed so much for our church. She was a prayerful lady. She is loved by SO many! She was one of my elders that I looked up too. (And I don’t look up to that many people). She had a big impacted on our church and everyone she came in contact with. She will be missed so dearly!!

But I started thinking:

What she is experiencing right now is what she has lived for her whole life.

She is walking on streets of gold.

She has gotten to hear “Well done my good and faithful servant!”

She has seen Jesus face to face.

She has gotten to see the ones who have gone before her again.

She is living in paradise!! I can’t even imagine what she is experiencing right now. Oh, what a day it will be! I know we will all grieve the loss of her, but we can also rejoice, for she has gone on to her prize! God’s will has been done. Heaven needed her more than we did and we will get to see her again one day, one glorious day.

So even though we lost her, we also know she doesn’t have to deal with anymore pain or suffering of this world!

(She had cancer 4 times but she doesn’t have to deal with it NO MORE!)


This song just came to my mind here are the lyrics:

Why are you saying goodbye?
Why are you so far away?
I barely can see you now
The light is beginning to fade
I still remember your touch
And the sound of your voice
You would have stayed if you could have made the choice

Now that you know where Heaven is

You wouldn’t trade that world for this
You wouldn’t give up the streets made of gold now that you know

Now that you’ve reached that Holy Place

Now that you’ve looked upon His face
The half has never been told, now that you know

The river of time will roll on

Days will turn into years
As long as you’re in my heart
You will always be near
If you were offered this life once again
And eternity’s bridge could be burned
I’m sure you’d say “no”, you’d never want to return
Now that you know where Heaven is
You wouldn’t trade that world for this
You wouldn’t give up the streets made of gold now that you know
Now that you’ve reached that Holy Place
Now that you’ve looked upon His face
The half has never been told, now that you know

I know I’ll see you there
Now that you know where Heaven is
You wouldn’t trade that world for this
You wouldn’t give up the streets made of gold now that you know

Now that you’ve reached that Holy Place
Now that you’ve looked upon His face
The half has never been told, now that you know
You wouldn’t change a single thing
Now that you’ve heard the angels sing
The half has never been told, now that you know.

Now that you know where Heaven is you wouldn’t trade that world for this. Go live with Jesus now Sis. Pat! You have definitely deserved it. I love you, Sis. Pat!❤

Stay strong! ~ Vanessa W

  1. Well, as the world knows I am not into religion but I believe that everyone has the right to believe what they wish to and that their beliefs come true and I hope that Pat’s did!… these are the words I read at my late wife’s passing and gravesite;

    Do not stand at my grave and weep
    I am not there, I do not sleep
    I am a thousand winds that blow
    I am the diamonds glints in the snow
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain
    I am the gentle autumn rain
    When you awaking in the morning hush
    I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight
    I am the soft star that shines at night
    Do not stand by my grave and cry
    I am not there, I did not die
    (Mary Frye)
