Nearing Home


On this final day of two thousand eleven
What thoughts are on your mind
Are there any thoughts of heaven
And the joy you will find

Another year has come and gone
What difference did it make
It means that you are nearing home
What pathway did you take

Did you take the straight and narrow one
The one that few will find
Or the broad road to destruction
Will you be left behind

A new year now is dawning
A chance to start life anew
Christ has done the atoning
The rest is up to you

It matters not what you have done
Your sins can be forgiven
You'll walk with Christ while nearing home
To spend eternity in heaven

	Curtis Moorman
	31 December 2011

	Inspired by Billy Graham's book by the same title

    We never know just how close to "home" we truly are. This keeps me mindful that we always need to be ready.
