IF I DIE BEFORE THE RAPTURE

IF I DIE BEFORE THE RAPTURE

If I die before the Rapture
    bury me under a lone oak
    wear your most colorful colors
    join with the angels singing
    Amazing Grace and Holy, Holy, Holy.

If I die before the Rapture
    picture me in Glory
    I’ll be waiting with open, outstretched arms
    for when you come to join me.

If I die before the Rapture
    write on my tombstone
    “Wife, Mother, Sister, Friend
    loved everyone with all she had
    and more
.”

If I die before the Rapture
    sing in one loud voice
    this one song I loved the most
    my life was lived in this
    ‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus.

If I die before the Rapture
    remember this one thing
    God is with you all the way
    He loves you more than anything.

You never know when something someone else is going through will impact your life and what you think about.  As I mentioned in my last post PASSING a dear family of ours have endured the passing of a very special lady in their family and this has had me thinking about the end of my life. About what I would want for my funeral and what I hope I leave as my legacy. May Jesus Christ be evident in our lives and may we leave a legacy that honors and glorifies Him.
