rest in peace is not the correct phrase...

by Christel Crews

no, today she is dancing before her Maker.
she is singing praises with the angels of old.
she is joining in with the saints worshiping our Lord
face-to-face.

there is peace,
but i think rest is the wrong word...

dance, sing, praise, run, love, jump,
be filled with peace.
you have fought the good fight,
you have run the race before you
we honor you and your memory here on earth.

Now that's the kind of Heaven I want to go to! Let the saints come marching in.
