Jolene Speaks

January 5, 2001

I love thee, God
How I love thee
Oh how I love him
He is so special to me
He is my dad when I had none
Oh what a God
A God that I love with all my heart
I love you beyond the glory
Beyond my eyes I do love thee
Love love is all I can say
Oh how I love thee

Mom's note: Amen! Now and forevermore.

Jolene's great love for the Lord shines through in everything she writes. Thank you for sharing, Darlene. You must be proud to be her mom and to know you passed your passion for God on to your daughter. Jolene now dances on streets of gold with her beautiful Savior. A lovely picture, indeed. No more sickness; no more sorrow. Just joy unspeakable and full of glory!

Amen! That's why I loved this poem. She said she loved the Lord "beyond the glory." As if a part of her could already see it ... and now she does.
