"My Life Has Just Begun"
If you could see me now
You wouldn't shed a tear
You'd be smiling
Instead of crying
It's so beautiful here
I wouldn't trade places
With any of you
My life has just begun..yes
I've started my life anew

Just remember that's only a body
That served its purpose there
Though we have not all the answers
We have to trust the Lord who cares
He cared enough to die for us
So that our souls could be free
Why not try to live for Him and be
In Heaven for eternity.

I thank the Lord for my family
And my friends
And I hope and I pray
I'll see all of you again
If you'll give your life
To the Savior you'll see
He'll guide you to
This Heavenly home
He made for you and me.

(I dedicate my song to Jackie's family.)
