To Life Eternal 

When sun shines for’ and radiates its light
The world in silent wonder does behold

‘Til bird with tunesome song dismiss the night

And light abounds to set the world with gold.

In this world fellow sojourners are we

Nor, my dear, are we lost here, you and I.

Now by sun and not always faith we see

But in the world to come: Christ, be our guide.

The morning sunrise on the earth foretells

An everlasting day whose end shall not

Die out among triumphant victory swells

The battle ever won, the orphan bought

It is for freedom we have been set free

To life eternal in ASLAN’s Country!

Hi, there! My name is Stephanie and I’m a Fresno, CA native. After studying at Biola University, I received my MLIS (Masters in Library Science) from San Jose State University. I live with my mom, poet Kimberly Vargas Agnese, and serve as her unofficial agent. We reside at MeadowArc, a food forest in its infancy. I am called to, and passionate about, purity. In fact, the name Agnes means “pure.” Before I was born, my mom felt led to include the name Agnes in her name, and in the names of her children. My full, hyphenated name includes 26 letters (but not the whole alphabet).
