God Gold of the Day
Found this little story on http://godslittleacre.net/funnies/ and thought it was too good not to share. I usually try to find some humor for ya on the Son-day Surprise but this story just ends up being…..well you’ll see! Hope everyone has a great Sunday getting fed from the Word and worshiping the One who deserves it all!!! I don’t know if you can see it or feel it yet but I got a feeling this upcoming week is going to be a good one! Let’s rest and prepare today so we can get up and get after it on Monday! Look Velma Lou got that thumbs up! She agrees! Love y’all!
“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?
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.’
Remember…Just going to church doesn’t make you a Christian
Any more than…Standing in your garage makes you a car.”
“A cheerful heart is good medicine” (Prov. 17:22)”
