got this in my email and felt I had to share it. it is awesome

I Hold Clear Title"
  Some years ago radio evangelist Charles E. Fuller announced that he
would speak the following Sunday on "Heaven." It was to be broadcast on
radio. During that week he received a letter from an elderly gentleman who
was very ill.
  Here is part of that letter: "Next Sunday you are to talk about
'Heaven.' I am interested in that land because I have held a clear title to
a bit of property there for over 55 years. I did not buy it. It was given
to me without money and without price. But the donor purchased it for me at
a tremendous sacrifice.
  I am not holding it for speculation since the title is nontransferable.
It is not a vacant lot. For more than a half-century I have been sending
material out of which the greatest architect and builder of the universe
has been building a home for me, which will never need to be repaired
because it will suit me perfectly, individually, and will never grow old.
  Termites can never undermine its foundation for it rests upon the Rock
of Ages. Fire cannot destroy it. Floods cannot wash it away. No locks or
bolts will ever be placed upon its doors, for no vicious person can ever
enter that land where my dwelling stands, now almost completed and ready
for me to enter it and abide in peace eternally without fear of being
  There is a valley of deep shadow between the place where I live in
California and that to which I shall journey in a very short time. I cannot
reach my home in the City of God without passing through the dark valley of
shadows. But I am not afraid, because the best friend that I have ever had
went through the same valley alone, a long, long, time ago and drove away
all the gloom. He has stuck by me through thick and thin since we first met
and became acquainted 55 years ago, and I hold His promise in printed form,
never to forsake nor to leave me alone. He will be with me as I walk
through the valley of shadows, and I shall not lose my way when He is with
  I hope to hear your sermon on "Heaven" next Sunday from my home, but I
have no assurance that I shall be able to do so. My ticket to heaven has no
date marked for the journey... No return coupon... And no permit for
baggage.  Yes, I am ready to go and may not be here while you are talking
next Sunday, but I shall meet you there some day."

for mom

here is something I received in my email and wanted to share with you.
This is a truly BEAUTIFUL piece please 
read this at a slow pace, digesting every word and in 
 leisure...do not hurry....this is a treasure... 
  For those lucky to still be blessed with your Mom, 
  this is beautiful. For those of us who aren't, this is 
  even more beautiful. For those who are moms, you'll love this. 
 The young mother set her foot on the path of life. "Is this the long way?"
she asked.   And the guide said:  "Yes, and the way is hard.  And you will
old before you reach the end of it. But the end  will be better than the
  But the young mother was happy, and she would not 
  believe that  anything could be better than these years. So she 
  played with her children, and gathered flowers for 
  them along the way, and bathed them in the clear streams; and 
  the sun shone on them, and the young Mother cried, 
  "Nothing will ever be lovelier than this." 
  Then the night came, and the storm, and the path was 
  dark, and the children shook with fear and cold, and the mother 
  drew them close and covered them with her mantle, and the children said, 
"Mother, we are not afraid, for you are near, and no harm can come." 
  And the morning came, and there was a hill ahead, and 
  the children climbed and grew weary, and the mother was weary. 
  But at all times she said to the children," A little  patience and we are
  So the children climbed, and when they reached the top 
  they said, "Mother, we would not have done it without you." 
  And the mother, when she lay down at night looked up 
  at the stars and said, "This is a better day than the last, for my 
  children have learned fortitude in the face of hardness. Yesterday I gave
them courage 
Today, I 've given them strength." 
And the next day came strange clouds which darkened 
  the earth, clouds of war and hate and evil, and the children groped 
 and stumbled, and the mother said: "Look up. Lift your eyes to the light. 
" And the children looked and saw above the clouds 
  an everlasting glory, and it guided them beyond the 
  darkness. And that night the Mother said, 
"This is the best day of all, for 
  I have shown my children God" 
  And the days went on, and the weeks and the months and 
  the years, and the mother grew old and she was little and bent. 
  But her children were tall and strong, and walked with 
  courage.  And when the way was rough, they lifted her, 
  for she was as light as a feather; and at last they came to a hill, 
  and beyond they could see a shining road and golden gates flung wide And 
  mother said, "I have reached the end of my journey. And now I know the end 
is better than the beginning, for my children can 
  walk alone, and their children after them." 
  And the children said, "You will always walk with us, 
  Mother, even when you have gone through the gates." 
  And they stood  and  watched her as she went on alone, and the gates 
  closed after her.  And they said: "We cannot see her 
 but she is with us still. A Mother like ours is more than a memory.  She 
  is a living presence......." 
  Your Mother is always with you.... She's the whisper 
  of the leaves as you walk down the street; she's the smell of bleach 
  in your freshly laundered socks; she's the cool hand 
  on your brow when you're not well. Your Mother lives 
  inside your laughter. And she's crystallized in every tear drop. 
  She's the place you came from, your first home; and 
  she's the map you follow with every step you take. She's your first love 
  and your first heartbreak, and nothing on earth can 
  separate you. 
  Not time, not space... not even death!

just reach out

Well as I ws laying here on my bed relaxing this afternoon words to a song by a gourp called petra ran through my head: :just reach out and he'll reach in. no matter who you are or where you've been. just reach out and he'll reachin." that is so true. all we need to do is reach out to Jesus and he'll reach in and clen up us up and give us peace. now is this easy? no!!! it is difficult because we often times things we have messed up way to many times to have it happen again. but let me assure you that it doesn't matter he'll always reach in and help us. is going to feel good. not always. sometimes it will hurt a little. I am mindful of molding clay. in order to make it look good after it is sculptured we have to put in a fire the fire is hot but the end result is beauty. for me now searching for a job is hard and challenging and it drives me mad and I wish it was done. but I am reaching out andknowing that he is reaching in and giving me his peace and guiding me. no matter where you are now I encourage you to do the same thing and see what happens. I love all you who are reading this and praying for you.
