“As I Sit in Heaven” – By Author Unknown
To be read on behalf of Joe Winston by TBD

As I sit in heaven
And watch you everyday
I try to let you know with signs
I never went away
I hear you when you’re laughing
And watch you as you sleep
I even place my arms around you
To calm you as you weep
I see you wish the days away
Begging to have me home
So I try to send you signs
So you know you are not alone
Don’t feel guilty that you have
Life that was denied to me
Heaven is truly beautiful
Just you wait and see
So live your life, laugh again
Enjoy yourself, be free
Then I know with every breath you take
You’ll be taking one for me…

“I’m Free” – by Author Unknown
To be read by Tykia Conway

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free
I’m following the path God laid for me,
I took His hand when I heard him call
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
I found that place at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy,
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss.
Ah yes, these things, too, we’ll miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow.
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I savored much.
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all to brief.
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me
God wanted me now. He set me free.

“A Grandfather Just Like You” – by author Unknown

To be read by Pebbles & Unique
I just want to let you know
You mean the world to me
Only a heart as dear as yours
Would give so unselfishly

The many things you’ve done
All the times that you were there
Help me know deep down inside
How much you really care

Even though I might not say
I appreciate all you do
Richly blessed is how I feel
Having a grandfather just like you

“A World Without Tears” – by Author Unknown
To be read by Addie Chilton

A World Without Tears – Page 1 of 2
Think of a world, a world without tears...Rev. 21:4
Where a man can live for a million years.
With never a grief, an ache or pain,
And never the thought of dying again.

Think of a world where a man plants a vine...Mic. 4:4
He can sit in its shade, and say, 'This is mine!'
He will live in a house his own hands have made,
And nothing shall molest or make him afraid.

Think of a world without bloodshed or strife,...Psalms 46:9
Where no man may take another man's life...Isaiah 2:4
Where man unto man will unite in peace,
And malice and hatred forever cease.

Think of a world as a global Paradise...Isaiah 35:1
Where mountains and desert will dazzle the eyes.
With beautiful flowers, and shrubbery, and trees,
With butterflies, song birds, and bees.

Think: Just as sure as God's word is truth,
A man shall return to the days of his youth...Job 33:25
His flesh shall become as the flesh of a child,
And the words that he speaks will be cheerful and mild.

Think of a world where a lame man will leap...Isaiah 35:6
From crag to crag like a deer or sheep.
Where none will be deaf, and none will be blind...Is 35:5
And the dumb shall sing and speak forth his mind.

Think of a world where each man is his brother, Psalms 133:1
Not esteeming himself above that of another...Acts 10:34,35
Where man to man will be friend to friend,
In a world without tears that will never end.

Think of a world where the dead have risen...John 11:24,25
From their silent tombs that held them in prison.
Forever to live, to love and caress...1Thes 4:9
Their loved ones and friends in righteousness.

A World Without Tears – Page 2 of 2

Now a world without tears is not just a dream,
As many persons might make it seem.
For just as sure as the Bible is true,
A world without tears now lies before you...Isaiah 25:8

And since such a world before you now lies,...Isaiah 65:17
Wouldn't you like to live in such a paradise?
And share all the blessings that God has in store,
For all who will do his will ever more.

This good news of the Kingdom is still being sung,
Through-out every nation, kingdom, and tongue...Rev. 7:9
And all who are thirsty for truth are invited,
To join the New World Society and be united...1Cor 1:10

In praising our God, our Savior, and King,
And giving to them all we have, everything...Romans 12:1
That we might live throughout endless years,
In a world without sorrow, a world without tears.

“The Clock” – by Bob Akins
To be read by Christina Akins

The clock of life is wound but once,
and no man has the power to tell
just when the hands will stop
on what day … or what hour.
Now is the only time you have,
So live it with a will
Don’t wait until tomorrow
The hands may then be still.
