“I’m Home, Don’t Mourn for Me”
I am leaving you with a gift “peace of mind” and “heart”. This peace is a gift to the world cannot give, so don’t be troubled or afraid. I am going away, but we will meet again. Be happy for me, do not mourn, for I am with our father in heaven sitting next to him on his throne. I don’t have much time to talk to you, for our ruler approaches so as I have told you of my happenings I want you not to mourn, but believe this is my happiness. I will do as the father requires of me, so that the world will know that I love thy father and I am home.
