Do you watch this show? Get your tissues out if it is new to you. Long lost separated family members are reunited on the show. Past pain and hurts seem to be forgotten in the emotion of reuniting.
If that is the joy of earthly meetings, consider the jubilation when we meet the family what has gone before us to heaven.
I have a long list of people I hope to meet at the pearly gates; my dear husband Ron of course, the baby we lost, parents, aunts and uncles, friends and so many more. Who are you expecting? Better still who is expecting you?
Surprise in Heaven
I dreamt death came the other night and Heaven’s gate swung wide.
An angel with a halo bright ushered me inside.
And there! To my astonishment stood folks I’d judged and labeled
As “quite unfit”, “of little worth”, and “spiritually disabled”.
Indignant words rose to my lips but never were set free,
For every face showed stunned surprise –not one expected me! (Anonymous)
There is only one way to be sure…ask Jesus into your life right now and live like he expects.
Prayer- Lord I am looking forward to going to heaven. Help me make the choices that get me there. Amen.
