One of life's secrets. God Bless Luke

This Life

To those who wonder and care !!

This Life

This life is a blessing
Complete with struggles and trials
You will always be guessing
And twisting life’s dials.

It will never be perfect
No matter how hard you try
No, it’s no good to object
At life’s end we all die.

You just have to continue to try
Do the best that you can
Yes, the years they will fly
Be good to yourself, be your best fan.

And when life is over
You look back along the road
Did you travel all over?
Did you handle life’s load?

Is there peace in your heart?
Have you made your amends?
From Earth to Heaven you start
With the message God sends.

No our soul never dies
But to Heaven ascends
Through sparkling clear skies
On God it depends.

So make peace with Him now
It’s never too late.
Let Christ show you how
For he stands at the gate.

Accept Him as your savior
And be born again
Change your behavior
And avoid Hells fire and pain.

Author's Comments:
"PS I believe we all need to have a relationship with God as we conceive Him to be. I happen to be a Christian because I so admire Christ as a person based on my historical research and his continuing impact on mankind. I have experienced the awakening and enhancement of my relationship with God through accepting and asking Christ to be my personal mentor and spiritual friend . I read the bible as a source of information and guidance but I respect all faiths and argue none. God Bless All. Luke "

What more can anyone ask of you? :-) To stand firm in one's beliefs is a good thing as long as you keep your mind open to all possibilities and I think from what I have read here this is exactly what you have done :-)
