Surprise!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Got this one from a friend's email. Read on....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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

any more than standing in your garage makes you a car…

Every saint has a PAST...

Every sinner has a FUTURE!

Don't trust yourself more than your limited sufficiency.

Don't trust God less than his all-sufficiency.

Very inspirational! In short, it just says ..let's not be judgmental!
Of which many are guilty, in one way or another.

We have lots of rain here too, also with lightning and thunders galore. Super loud and scary pa talaga!

Happy Independence Day to you Americans!
