Thanks Cousin for this One

I was shocked, confused, bewildered
As I entered Heaven’s door,
Not by the beauty of it all,
Nor the lights or its decor.

But it was the folks in Heaven
Who made me sputter and gasp–
The thieves, the liars, the sinners,
The alcoholics and the trash.

There stood the kid from seventh grade
Who swiped my lunch money twice.
Next to him was my old neighbor
Who never said anything nice.

Herb, who I always thought
Was rotting away in hell,
Was sitting pretty on cloud nine,
Looking incredibly well.

I nudged Jesus, ‘What’s the deal?
I would love to hear Your take.
How’d all these sinners get up here?
God must’ve made a mistake.

‘And why is everyone so quiet,
So somber – give me a clue.’
‘Hush, child,’ He said, ‘they’re all in shock.
No one thought they’d be seeing you.’

JUDGE NOT!!

Remember… Just going to church doesn’t make you a Christian anymore than standing in your garage makes you a car.

Every saint has a PAST…
Every sinner has a FUTURE!

  1. LOL.. Never expected the ending part.. but oh how true.. I was visiting different blogs in my journey and came across yours. We each have a gift from the Lord, and I just wanted to say to you.. continue on and nurture yours. Our creativity is given to us by the great creator himself. Hey it's our inheritance , creativity is such healing not only for ones soul, but others who come to see it.Blessings Lorie
