Francis, Barbara, Rose, Margie and Family. I was very sad to hear of the passing of Mario and my prayers are with you and your family.

I SEE GOD BEFORE ME

As I lay down to die I can see my soul being taken

before my eyes.

I see God before me.

I feel the sun shining on me.

The warmth invades my body.

No more feeling of cold surroundings.

I smell the spring flowers from a field.

I see the mountains with their peaks.

I see God before me

I hear the waters flow so peacefully.

I see a lake that is so calm with the mirror of a blue sky

That is above me.

I see God before me.

I am at peace and have no needs.

I am at happiness made just for me.

I feel no pain and have no illness.

I hear the birds singing just for me.

I see God before me.

I am lead by the hand through the field of harmony.

An Angel guides me with love.

A light blinds me.

I hear a symphony of Angels.

God is not before me now.

God is with me.
