Magnificent Promises

Best poem in the World…
Unknown author

I was shocked, confused bewildered
as I entered Heaven’s door,
Not by the beauty of it all,
Nor the lights or its décor,

But it was the folks in Heaven
who made me sputter and gasp–
The thieves, the liars, the sinners,
The alcoholics and the trash.

There stood the kid from seventh grade
Who swiped my lunch money twice.
Next to him was my old neighbor
Who never said anything nice

Bob, who I thought
Was rotting in hell.
Was sitting pretty on cloud nine,
Looking incredibly well.

I nudged Jesus, What’s the deal?
I would love to hear your take.
How’d all these sinners get up here?
God must’ve made a mistake.

‘And why is everyone so quiet, 
So somber – give me a clue.
‘Hush, child,’ he said, ‘They’re all in shock. 
No one thought they’d be seeing you.’


Remember… Just going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than standing in your garage makes you a car mechanic.

Every Saint has a PAST…
Every sinner has a future….

Life without God is like an unsharpened pencil…
It has NO point!
