Writer’s Note: This was written a few years ago as my friend, Ross, stood at the threshold between heaven and earth. Although cancer had escorted him there, angels ushered him into Heaven a couple of months later. God is good. All the time. Amen and Ehmen.
God stretches out his arms
Patiently waiting for his son to come home
He’s been waiting for a while
As His son struggles to hang on
But, soon the son will trade
his struggles for God’s peace
And God will smile brightly as he
prepares the homecoming feast.
The Lord’s attention will then turn
To comforting those souls
Who are left behind and
no longer feel whole.
For He weeps with the hurting
And reminds us of the cross
Better days are coming
For He’s already paid the cost.
