you believe in God, believe also in Me. In my Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you.

I just wanted to let you know that I made it home . Everything is so pretty, so white , so fresh , so new… I wish you could just close your eyes so that you are able to see it too… Please try not to be sad for me. Try to understand, God is taking care of me, I am in the shelter of His hands. Here there is no sadness, no sorrow, no crying and no pain . I’ll never hurt again. Here it is so peaceful, when all the angels sing . I really have to go now - I’ve just got to try out my wings… I’ll be the first face you see when you get here . I finally made it home…
