Safely Home
by Author Unknown

I am home in heaven, dear ones; Oh, so happy and so bright.
There is a perfect joy and beauty in this everlasting light.

All the pain and grief is over, every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever, safely home in heaven at last.

Did you wonder I so calmly Trod the valley of the shade?
Oh, but Jesus’ love illuminated every dark and fearful glade.

And He came Himself to meet me in the way so hard to tread;
And with Jesus’ arm to lean on could I have one doubt or dread?

Then you must not grieve so sorely, for I love you dearly still.
Try to look beyond death’s shadows; Pray to trust our Father’s will.

There is work still waiting for you, so you must not idly stand.
Do it now, while life remaineth; you shall rest in Jesus’ land.

When that work is all completed, He will gently call you home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting; Oh, the joy to see you come!

My Journey’s Just Begun…. Don't think of me as gone away, my journey's just begun. Life holds so many facets, this earth is but one. Just think of me as resting from the sorrows and the tears. Just think of me in a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days or years. Think of how I must be wishing that you could know today how nothing but your sadness can really go away. Think of me as living in the hearts of those I touched for nothing loved is ever lost and rest assure I know how much I was loved so much.

It is with profound sadness, but with complete conviction in the faithfulness of God Almighty that we announce the transition of Sister Adlean Charles Moses, affectionately known as “Sister”. Sister Moses was a member of the Jamestown Road Church of God under the leadership of Reverend Curtis Murph.

Burial will be in the Jamestown Road Church of God Cemetery. Services are exclusive for immediate family members (invitation only). Service will be streamed live at Jamestown Road Church of God


Please remember the Moses family in prayer during this difficult time.

For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.   (2 Corinthians 5:1-4)


**IN LIGHT OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC**  Our prayer is that everyone be mindful of the risk associated with the COVID 19 virus and adhere to all social distancing protocol.


Cards or acknowledgments can be sent to the care of Sister Juanita Martin, 204 Brahman Way, Fountain Inn, South Carolina 29644.
