Shepherd – The last few years mom cried out and wanted to be free, the Lord looked down and said you’re not ready. Her mom and dad wait for her there, and Jesus Christ prepared a home with great care. Now is the time, there are no bags to pack. Come my daughter, there is no turning back. Mom’s last message to all that grieve, the Lord Jesus will save you if you just believe.
