Our Mother, Grandmother and Sister:

All life through, you have been a wonderful mother and beautiful friend.  You have always given us the best of everything, and told us to always love one another, and show respect at all times to our elders.  Then, the Lord would provide us with all the help we need.  You have given us so much love, and we love you too, but God loves you best.  So, lay down and take your rest because you have fought a good fight for Jesus.



Some of these days all the skies will be brighter.

Some of these days all burdens will be lighter.

Hearts will be happier, souls will be whiter, Some of these days!

Some of these days in the deserts up springing,

Fountains shall flash while the joy-bells are ringing,

And the world with its sweetest of words shall go singing.

Some of these days!

Some of these days! Let us bear with our sorrow

Faith in the future- its light we may borrow.

There will be joy in the golden tomorrow-

Some of these days!
