So Shall We Ever Be...

From time to time, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll discuss music.  Like I will, today!

My Facebook (FB) friend A, posted a link to a YouTube (YT) music video written by Carl. L Trivette and recorded by Alan Jackson entitled, I Want To Stroll Over Heaven With You.  Here is a link to listen and/or sing along:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aEmyiOM9Sa4.  The lyrics are below.

I Want To Stroll Over Heaven With You

If I survey all the good things that come to me from above
If I count all the blessings from the storehouse of love
I'd simply ask for the favor of him beyond mortal kin
And I'm sure he would grant it again
I want to stroll over Heaven with you some glad day
When all our troubles and heartaches are vanished away
Then we'll enjoy the beauty where all things are new
I want to stroll over Heaven with you

So many places of beauty we long to see here below
But time and treasures have kept us from making plans as you know
But come the morning of the rapture together we'll stand a new
While I stroll over Heaven with you
I want to stroll over Heaven with you some glad day
When all our troubles and heartaches are vanished away
Then we'll enjoy the beauty where all things are new
I want to stroll over Heaven with you


I want to stroll over Heaven with you

It would truly be a beautiful thing to do, to be able to stroll over heaven.  Especially, with those we know and care for.

When I first found the link to this video with the lyrics shown on-screen, I scrolled down a bit, and read the information, just below the YT. 

If you read it for yourself, you'll see that the fellow who wrote this song, wrote it for his wife.  She requested that it be sung at her funeral.  When she died, he recited the song, as a eulogy to her.

Sigh...

How wonderful this was to read.  And, to think about the love that he had for his wife.

The lyrics are lovely.  Full of love.  And, speak truth.  For, at some point in time, the rapture will happen. 

Yes, one day, this will happen.

Just as we read in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, "But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words."

Yes, those words are comforting.  Each and every one of us will only live on this earth, for a short time, compared to eternity.  But, just as we just read, the rapture will happen.

Please realize that not everyone will be raptured.  Not everyone here on earth, will be caught up together with the Lord, in the air.

And, it won't matter if you've died here on earth, and are considered to be asleep in Jesus... or, if you are still alive and breathing, here on earth. 

Only those who have gained salvation, by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ, will be raptured.  Hopefully, you are one.  For, I am another.  And, will be grateful to see you, and spend time with you, and... with our Lord.


Until next time...
