What a fine man and minister of the Gospel of Good News of Jesus Christ. Well thought of and a classy man and great speaker with lots of energy and believed what he said and was very convincing. He is blown away by what God had prepared for him and waiting with lots of surprises starting with his personal song, a ring, a new name, a book God wrote about him before he breathed him into his mothers womb, Psalms 139 Passion Version says it best. Paul looks like 25 again and can't believe the music in heaven. Sounds like 1000 songs at one time, all blending into one in praise to God the Father and Jesus Christ the Son and the Sweet Holy Spirit. Friends, Family and Bible people, so intriguing and this will last for eternity. Claim your mansion now by saying Jesus, I accept what you did for me on the cross and you paid the price for me that I might live with you in Heaven. My Jesus I love you I know you are mine. Wonderful Wonderful Jesus, he is my friend, true to the end. He gave himself to redeem me, Jesus wonderful Lord. See you soon Paul and you can show me around and we will have some fresh strawberry pie at my mother in love Florene Richardson...
