"Twas The Night Before Jesus Came"

'Twas the night before Jesus came and all through the house Not a creature was praying, not one in the house. Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care In hopes that Jesus would not come there. The children were dressing to crawl into bed. Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap. When out of the East there arose such a clatter. I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash, Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash! When what to my wondering eyes should appear But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here. With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY! The light of His face made me cover my head It was Jesus! returning just like He had said. And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth, I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself. In the Book of Life which He held in His hand Was written the name of every saved man. He spoke not a word as He searched for my name; When He said "it's not here" my head hung in shame. The people whose names had been written with love He gathered to take to His Father above. With those who were ready He rose without a sound. While all the rest were left standing around. I fell to my knees, but it was too late; I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate. I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight; Oh, if only I had been ready tonight. In the words of this poem the meaning is clear; The coming of Jesus is drawing near. There's only one life and when comes the last call We'll find that the Bible was true after all!

God is SO GREAT!!!!

At the moment I am out of a job and my husband {Roy} had to go to this place that gives food to people that need it. Well not only did they give him food they gave him extra food and then some guy that parked beside of him gave him $20.00 when Roy was leaving!!!! We just put our last $20.00 in today for gas and we were wondering what we were going to do after that gas ran out in a few days. God is SO GREAT!!!

Now I don't want to count my chickens before they are hatched, but if all goes well with my background/drug tests {which they should} God has given me a job and get this, my pay will be more than $10.00 an hour!!!!!!! God is SO GREAT! I will know for sure in a couple of days, and she wants me to start no later than May 1st.

"I LOVE the Lord He heard my cry, He lifted me way up high. Set my feet upon a mountain top. Just think of it, the Lord my King, the creater of everything, LOVES me with a Love that won't stop!"
