For Mom ljung and Her Family

we are thinking of you especially this christmas my dearest friend and gunnar and the princess and kel.... I see the countless Christmas trees Around the world below, With tiny lights like heaven's stars Reflecting in the snow. The sight is so spectacular please wipe away that tear for I am spending CHRISTMAS WITH JESUS CHRIST this year. I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear but the sound of music can't compare with the CHRISTMAS CHOIR up here. I have no words to tell you of the JOY their voices bring for it is beyond description to HEAR THE ANGELS SING. I know how much you miss me, I see the pain inside your heart for I am spending CHRISTMAS WITH JESUS CHRIST this year. I can't tell you of the SPLENDOR or the PEACE here in this place Can you just imagine CHRISTMAS WITH OUR SAVIOR face to face? I'll ask him to lift your spirit as I tell him of your love so then PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER as you lift your eyes above. Please let your hearts be joyful and let your spirit sing for I am spending CHRISTMAS IN HEAVEN and I’m walking WITH THE KING. merry christmas our friends on the far side of the sea....bernie, terry, mom and dad golden.

For Sonja

when betty and i were teenagers and betty had her first job, we lived together with two other christian girls in ottawa, ont...i was stiil going to high school and had no money..ha! but betty did and she used to spend a lot on buying records at k mart. that is how i grew to love the southern gospel singing of stuart hamblem...to this day i have one of those long play records.....all of the hymns sung there by stuart hamblem were written by him....all but the title, "i believe"..this here song, "they that wait upon the lord" was written by stuart hamblem in that record. a beautiful blogger by the name of sonja goodson posted about how she knew stuart and his wife suzy and so this is dedicated to her!.....love terry
