"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!

I heard some bad news last night...

A young 17 year old girl, who use to be our neighbor, had Bi-polar and went crazy one night and trashed her and her boyfriends place. She had to leave and went to live with her Mama and step Dad...well apparently she tried to shoot them both, but for some reason it didn't fire or work or something and she then turned the gun on herself and...well without sounding to graphic she put it to her...chin. She died and the worst thing about it is she probably thought her troubles would be over, but in all reality they just begun. Immediately she woke up in Hell and is now and forever more will be burning and in pain for ALL eternity! 

I feel very angry with myself, too because I did not witness to her as I should of...thinking I had plenty of time to do it. My stomach has been in knots since I found out and I feel as though her blood is on my hands. Oh if we would all just realize the importance of witnessing and being a good testimony to everyone around us. 

It is SO sad that people think killing their self will end all their problems. If we could ALL realize that our VERY BEST solution to any problem is to just turn EVERYTHING to GOD and He will help us!!! And will answer our prayers...of course it may not be the answer WE want, but rest assured it will be the RIGHT answer for us!

Please pray for her family as I know they are going through a very hard time with all this. And may this be an eye opener to me as well as others, that we should witness to everyone we can because we NEVER know when it will be their time to go!
