I remember reading Heaven is For Real and bawling my eyeballs out after reading Colton Burpo’s words to a dying man in a nursing home:
“It’s going to be okay. The first person you’re going to see is Jesus.”
I do not know what my last day looks like.
Maybe it comes without warning and takes me before I realize it. Or maybe it comes expectedly…
in a nursing home
or a hospital bed
or in a cell in a far away land.
I can see each of these scenarios vividly in my mind and my prayer is this: that whatever my condition or circumstance…
I have a smile on my face,
tears in my eyes,
love in my heart,
anticipation in my voice,
and these words on my lips:
“Can you believe it? I’m finally going to see His face!”
I do not know what my last day looks like, but what a day it will be!
