Notice! Change of address;


Dear family and friends, I want you to know that I have moved. I received a call from God the chief architect; who informed me that my new home was ready and I could move in immediately. I just did not have time to give you notice.

I have been storing up timber in my own way, piling up a little at a time, getting ready to leave. But there were some minor things to do some finishing touches on the timber that only the chief carpenter to Jesus Christ could help me do. I also had to wait for him to let me know when he finished those that were too broad too thick or not long enough.

Well, my new home is finished and it’s such a beautiful sight to behold. It’s located in exclusive estate, and it sits behind the pearly gates just off a serene celestial Shores. Of course the streets are paved with gold and every day is Sunday here... I have been told.

I have lived in several places before my new home was prepared and none of the others have compared. There is peace, joy and happiness here with no pain to bear. There is no strife or discontent. I am now being fitted for my wings. Let me give you my new address. Because I highly recommend you make plans to live here too!
