Treasure Island

A Halo Above Me.


An older man made a comment today,
One look at him and I was not afraid.
He belongs to the sheep fold of the Good
Shepherd- Jesus Christ our Savior and Lord.

He said, 'You have a halo above your head, '
and I replied, 'so do you.'
He said, 'Thank you...'
Then he went out the door,
and I saw him no more.

Above his head, I beheld a heavenly glow,
I just wanted you all to know!
His face showed serenity's peace
throughout all eternity!

Jesus Christ is watching over me,
twenty four hours a day.
Why should I fear or be afraid.

Someday our earthly lives will come
to an adrupt end. But throughout
all eternity we will be forever friends!
Love in Christ Jesus!

I never knew I had a halo, it is invisible to me. But he saw my halo, and I saw his! Love in Christ Jesus!

To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
