Poem

My sister in law emailed me this poem and she sent it to me, not knowing that I truly need it! It came at the perfect time. I thought I'd share it with all of you.
Being a Christian, trying to do the best raising my 2 kids ( and wanting more), it showed me a few things, that I need to teach them as well.



BEST POEM IN THE WORLD!


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's 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 no more than standing in your garage makes you a car.


I hope all of you enjoyed this as much as I did! Its a lil different from my usual post, but I have a very stressful week coming up, and it just reminded me Why I love God! and what He is to me!

I hope all of you have a good week!
