As you read this, you may think the title of this blog and my blog itself are contradictory, but if you can read between the lines or just read the lines themselves, you may change your opinion. I had a very close friend come to visit me this past weekend. As she and I shared old friendship and life stories mixed with new ones, we realized that though life takes us around many different roads, we seem to meet at the crossroads every time. I do believe that is the way of us here on Earth, and I personally believe that it will be the same way in Heaven. I believe The Lord gave us rules and instructions to follow to be able to make it to Heaven. Some will see and understand these things in time to get right with Him so that we may see each other again one day, while others will wait until it's too late and we won't see each other after this life here on Earth. There are those that I'm almost positive I will see in the best phase of "life" and that is the afterlife. Anything can happen at any time. Car accidents, sudden medical issues that take someone in the blink of an eye, an "act of God", anything...., so it's time for us all to examine our lives. I know of a friend who wrote a blog and another friend called it preachy. Well honestly, I'm not trying to be preachy, but if you are taking it that way maybe you are one that needs to examine your life. I am not perfect. I never have been and never will be. I have a smart mouth and a bad temper. Those are just two of my faults and to list them all would be an entire book. I also once had a friend who asked me one time if I prayed for myself. I told her no, that I thought God knew what I was feeling. I know she will read this, so Cheri I want you to know that yes, I do pray for myself now. I pray for God to grant me peace and grace as I travel down this road. I ask for wisdom to know how to speak and when. I ask for strength to carry on His purpose for my life. I do NOT ask for Him to reveal His purpose to me because I see it unfolding everyday. I thank you all for the love and support you have given my family and friends and me. Please know that I AM happy here on Earth as I wait for Him to take me Safely Home. I pray that you do the very same.
