" I Can Only Imagine"

Hi Friend's!!! I'm off today and tomorrow and I will do the same'ol same'ol around here but I think today I will be doing a few extras around here, I have a few closets and cupboards that need straighting up, and this extra bedroom that I have the computer in is a real mess. Amanda and Chris had a good time at the State Fair, they where some what upset that they didn't get there in time for wrist bands for the rides, it was cheaper that way, they stopped selling those at 4 and they got there at 5, and to buy individual tickets was very pricey, considering it took like 6 tickets, so they just enjoyed each other company and took a "Bonnie & Clyde" picture, saw a few friends. When I was coming home this morning from taking Johnanthon to school I heard that song "I Can Only Imagine" that sweet Nita had on her blog the other day, and I just wanted to close my eyes and "Only Imagine" what it would be like to see Jesus face to face and the Holy spirit spoke to my heart and of course I started to cry and the chills I got, I got them so bad my head felt warm! I know how excited I get when I see people I haven't seen for a long time, but I cant imagine the excitement I'll feel when I can Jesus face to face! Have you ever noticed the older we get the closer to Jesus we get, is it because we know our time on this earth is coming closer to ending or is it because we are maturing and don't live the life style we once did as teenagers or in our early 20's, that terrible scene that I did, why is that we don't start caring then? where as before I thought I was invisible, when my life could have ended as easy then, as it can now! Last night on Oprah, she had that lady on again that wrote that book, "Eat, Pray, Love" and I thought...."I want that book" so I'm going to be looking for that book and if it's not pricey I'm buying it!!! "I Can Only Imagine" has me truly thinking, thinking about SOOOOOOO much!!!!!!!!!!

I'm not sure I know that song. Well chances are I do but don't know the title. I've always listened to music but not paid much attention to artists and titles just if I liked it. I think you're right about getting older. We realize time on earth is not infinite. When we're younger we don't have that realization and I think maybe that's good. If we did, I wonder if we would be too fearful and not do what we need to do as young people? Great food for thought.

Have a good day!!!!
