Heaven

Post by HEPZIBAH » Mon Jul 20, 2015 9:43 am

I've just seen this and it made me think of some recent posts and a conversation I had yesterday. Sorry, I can't give credit as I don't know who wrote it or what it's called.

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.
Bob, 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.'


Image Experience is not what happens to you;
it is what you do with what happens to you.

Nice find Hepzibah.. :up


Do not judge, and if you do, then try your best to see it from the other side... just in case you are missing something. :cool:
There's a time for everyone, if they only learn
That the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn.

I believe that it was written by Ann On. 8)

A prolific author indeed.
