Life is But a Stopping Place (1)

Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what’s to be,
A resting place along the road,
To sweet eternity

We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to learn some things,
But never mean to stay…

Our destination is a place,
Far greater than we know.
For some the journey’s quicker,
For some the journey’s slow.

And when the journey finally ends,
We’ll make a great step forward,
And find an everlasting peace,
As our special reward.

Life is But a Stopping Place (2)

Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what's to be,
A resting place along the road
To sweet eternity.

We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to learn some things,
But never meant to stay...

Our destination is a place
Far greater than we know.
For some, the journey's quicker,
For some, the journey's slow.

And when the journey finally ends,
We'll claim a great reward
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the Lord.

Waiting At Eternity's Door

Death beckoned him with outstretched hand
And whispered softly of 'an unknown land'...
But he was not afraid to go
For though the path he did not know,
He took death's hand without a fear
For God who safely brought him here
Had promised He would lead the way
Into eternity's bright day . . .

For none of us need go alone
Into the valley that's unknown

But guided by our Father's hand
We journey to the promised land . . .
And as his loving, faithful wife
Who shared his home and heart and life,
You will find comfort for your grief,
In knowing death brought sweet relief

For now he is free from all suffering and pain
And your 'great loss' became his gain . . .
You know his love is with you still,
For he loved you in life and he always will . . .
For love like yours can never end
Because it is the perfect blend
Of joys and sorrows, smiles and tears
That just grows stronger with the years
And love like this can never die,
For you 'take it with you to the sky' . . .
So think of your loved one as living above
No farther away than your undying love . . .
And now he is happy and free once more
And he waits for you at eternity's door.
