Nothing to Fear

We never know when death will come, so I cast my worries aside. When I first heard the news, my heart went numb, and then the diagnosis I denied. Finally acceptance came as I cried. Sands are pouring through the hourglass, but faith now saves me from fear. The beauty of heaven waits and I have a pass. At God’s plan, I will not sneer as I prepare to approach a blessed frontier. *Entry for the Great Poetry Release Extravaganza

Congrats on your winning work..Death is in everyone's life sooner or later unless Christ comes and calls the Christians to come on home before the tribulation..I know that you are ready but want to live to be a ripe old age with all the bucket list checked off and the list thrown away..Sara

I like the idea of a "blessed frontier." It's not the end, but probably a glorious continuance. You be the best. Love, daver
