Off To Heaven 

by Christine Calabrese


 Off to heaven now you go,

 Angels usher there we know,

 We are here and see you fly,

 Off to heaven as we cry.


 We will miss your smiling faces,

 The comfort of your warm embraces,

 Off you go now little ones,

 Angels wings up to the Son.


He is there and all the rest,

On His knee you’ll soon be blest,

And Mary’s heart is open wide,

She will guide you by her side.


With heavy hearts we bid your parting,

Little lives just only starting,

Heaven’s meadows lush and green,

Call you to their playing scene.


Angels guard you now forever,

Safe from harm and each endeavor,

Heaven’s doors are open wide

As they guide you there inside.


Sad and sorrowful our weeping,

Safe now in the Father’s keeping,

As you watch us from above,

Sending us your precious love.


Please forgive us little ones,

Holy Spirit and the Son,

Help us now to love you there,

Resting in the Father’s care.


Heaven's Gates

About Me
Lately I'm I am enjoying the challenge of "Veganizing" and "Nutritionizing" otherwise decadent and fat laden recipes. See my Vegan Gluten Free Brownies for example. It's quite fun to match the taste and add nutritional value to our favorite recipes. Stay tuned as I'm always working on some kind of matching creation.
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking everything, rather than a favorite thing to cook, I would like to share my favorite kitchen equipment, which is, my Blendtec Blender. It is AMAZING. Almost every recipe I create reaps the benefits of this expert kitchen tool. Next to that, I'd say I love my cast iron skillet.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mom and Dad used to make the most amazing food. My Uncle Henry used to make these chicken wings that I loved. I remembered the recipe and make a tofu version!
My cooking triumphs
I like raw chocolate and spent about two years creating my own raw chocolate creation, which I call, Pure Delights. It was a fun occupation and hobby. I think, though, now since I'm on all recipes, I've finally come up with an acceptable vegan brownie!
My cooking tragedies
Burning my hand in the oven! Ouch! That hurts! I am prepared now, I bought a little burn kit which has come in handy recently!
