To the 'Good and Faithful servant,'
Jesus, welcomes home with smile and hug,
To those headed for eternal Torment,
They see Jesus weep, with sad shrug.
Welcomed Home
By Arley Steinhour 070612

I went to a funeral, today,
of a lifelong friend, and brother,
I take but a moment, to say,
We'll all take that trip, like no other.

Arriving before Jesus, at Alter,
For Judgment of our mortal life,
Determines, Eternal, Here-after,
Be it, Torment, or, a part of His Wife.

After Service, I returned to my home,
High-noon Sun, was beaming heat,
Celebrated his new Life, and new home,
With his wife, in Heaven, John planted his feet.

I don't know the plans, or the fanfare,
So many, he'd helped in their 'graduation,'
With so many awaiting, their welcome to share,
John, could probably start his own nation.

The first one he'd seek, without question,
Would be Jesus, who paid John's full fare,
Who through life, led John to his disposition,
Through his parents, he learned well, to care.

You, LORD, have John, with you, in Heaven,
Rewarding him, for what glorified you true,
You've removed every trace of John's leaven,
He's now justified, to be with Karla, and YOU.

AMEN
