I have received this precious gift that insures my citizenship with tose who eternally praise and love God. I will share this gift willingly with those who seek its promise but I will not caste it before swine as a bauble traded for some bright shiny thing of the world.
There are those in my worldly family of friends who do not know about this gift. They are not searching for its blessing. They know I am unique but are not interested in the source of my joy. They believe life ends in death and nothing is beyond. My faith to them is foolish and weak minded. I pray for their souls.
May the lost sheep yet join the caravan carrying all of the faithful to the place I have known since I was a child where the throng of all who have gone before will welcome us with love and celebration.
