Homecoming Jan (Ami) Eileen Kloostra

11 Timothy 4:6-8.

“The time of my departure is at hand. I have fought the good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
“Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing”.

I once met a woman,
Who could see into my heart without a light,
As I welcomed her in my heart was changed,
To never more take flight!!!!!

Her love and her care was more than any man could bare,
My heart was amazed and astounded,
That God made a woman so beautiful and so grounded!!!!!

Adam blamed his woman when they disobeyed God and turned the world upside down,
“It was the woman you gave me,”
“It was the woman you gave me,” He cried,
As they completely missed their crown!!!!!

I to blame the woman He gave me,
but for the goodness and joy in Christ Jesus,
Turning my world and my joy right side up,
And she always with joy was bearing her cup,
which drove me to never give up!!!!!

Jerry L. Kloostra
