    Dear Sharon and Savannah, Enjoyed spending time w/ u'all this evening. "If you Could See Me Now" Our prayers have been answered, I finally arrived, the healing that has been delayed has now been realized, no one's in a hurry, there's no schedule to keep, we're all just enjoying Jesus, just sitting at his feet. If u could see me now, I'm walking streets of gold, if u could see me now, I'm standing tall and whole. If u could see me now, you'd know I've seen his face, if u could see me now you'd know the pain is erased. U wouldn't wouldn't want me to ever leave this perfect place, if u could see me now. If you could only see me now!
