I wrote this poem that manifested itself in my head while mowing the lawn.
I had just had a disagreement with a brother in the Lord.
If the rapture were to happen today
What are the words you would say
To the brother or sister in Christ
Whom you closed the door on tonight?
If the rapture were to happen right now
Would your behavior in heaven be allowed?
To the brother or sister you hurt
Would you find the line drawn in the dirt?
If this were the last prayer before
You found you were on earth no more
Would your whispers be one of remorse
Or more in line with a curse?
If today were the last day you had
To put it all right before bed
Would you do everything still the same
And find others at fault and to blame?
Or would you kneel in retreat as a servant
And yield to the heavens above
Would your words be in reverence and wonder?
And simply fixed on the things that are love?
Would you be remembered for your kindness
Your compassion and patience galore
Would the world say you were one to admire
Or someone that all should abhor?
Remember we add not one moment
To this time that we have hear on earth
So please chose your words and deeds wisely
So the world will rejoice of your birth!
