Luke 23:43 (ESV) And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.” Those words were spoken by Jesus as He hung, beaten and bloody, as the main character on Good Friday. He was nearing his own death, but He knew the outcome and wasn’t afraid.

The man hanging on the cross beside Him knew Jesus was no ordinary man. That criminal was being crucified for some heinous crime, but in those last minutes of his life, he had the opportunity to ask for forgiveness and be assured that he would enter heaven with His Savior. I know that my death is imminent. I think about it a lot now that I’m in my golden years. I undoubtedly will be mourned by those I leave behind, but will soon become a distant memory as time goes by. I haven’t really prepared for that day. I don’t have a Will. I don’t have a written plan for my funeral, but I know I’m ready. Jesus extends that same promise to me and all sinners. We too can join Him in paradise if we just believe that He has paid the price and our sins are forgiven.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
