Shared from Bob Geller:  A Glimpse of Heaven

I was shocked, confused, bewildered As I entered Heaven’s door,

Not by the beauty of it all, Nor the lights or its decor.
But it was the folks in Heaven Who made me sputter and gasp–
The thieves, the liars, the sinners, The alcoholics and the trash.
There stood the kid from seventh grade Who swiped my lunch money twice.
Next to him was my old neighbor Who never said anything nice.
Bob, who I always thought Was rotting away in hell,
Was sitting pretty on cloud nine, Looking incredibly well.
I nudged Jesus, ‘What’s the deal? I would love to hear Your take.
How’d all these sinners get up here? God must’ve made a mistake
And why is everyone so quiet, So somber – give me a clue.
‘Hush, child,’ He said, ‘They’re all in shock. No one thought they’d be seeing you.’ JUDGE NOT!!
Remember…Just going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than standing in your garage makes you a car.
Every saint has a PAST… Every sinner has a FUTURE! Now it’s your turn… Share this poem.
And remember to forgive. HE will!

  1. I really enjoyed this post. I could relate to a lot of what was being said in a lot of ways when i was growing up as a child, especially the parts about who swiped my lunch money, or the kids who never said anything nice or other such things and especially the part when you spoke of being told “Just going to church does’nt make you a Christian’, I was told that numerous times growing up, and then I made my own choices to go and hear the word of the Lord. <
