I was saddened when Jesus didn’t walk up the road May 21. Not because I believe in a Rapture. I don’t know where that idea came from. And not because the sins of the world continue on, unpunished. If there’s a Hell and damnation, I’m headed for it.

I was saddened because I love Jesus Christ. He’s the true friend of my life. I would love to walk with him; listen to his voice; laugh together.

It’s scary stuff to quote scripture, because I don’t know who wrote it, or why. Of course, the Big Fact is, they wrote because they had no choice. It’s the inevitable story of his life, make whatever sense of it we will. He loved and he laughed. He did his miracles. He let himself be killed so we don’t have to fear death anymore. All his friends wanted him to stay and he said, “I promise you, there are those standing here today who will not die until they see me in my glory.” He’s been back for two thousand years.
