There's a Song in the Air

It seems as though I have songs constantly coming into my head. As an event or moment in time "happens," I am reminded of a song. I have noticed that as I get older that the songs are more on the spiritual side than the secular.

I use to think of country songs or jingles as life's little events, but not so much any more. Perhaps, the most poignant songs are the songs of my childhood and teen years. The songs that my parents use to sing. As those songs come flooding back into my memory, I catch another glimpse of heaven.

I'm not going to say that things in this life won't hurt me again, because I know they will. But I've gotten more of a longing for what awaits me on the other side of this life, the proverbial Jordon.

When I cross that river, it was worth it all to me.
All the splendors of heaven, before my eyes I could see.
There stands Jesus and there's Mom and Dad, they've been waiting for me,
When I cross that river, it was worth it all to me

Oh, that's just one of the many, many songs that come to me and comfort me. I've pretty much decided that whatever happens in this life is really nothing to fret too much about. The only thing that matters in this life is doing what God wants me to do in order that more people will come to know Him, thereby, making their way to heaven in the end.

I'm anxiously awaiting that day when the Lord calls me home. But until then, I'm going His way and doing His will.
