Wednesday's assignment. . . .

The assignment for our spiritual class at Chesterfield this week was write about who we want to greet us when we go to the "other side". . . . I figured it out. Here's my answer:


This question for days, was in the back of my mind, nagging at me. I discussed it with my friends. I wrangled, wrestled and worried about picking the “right” person to greet me.

Then, I heard that wise, somewhat tired and annoyed, little voice inside my head, “Christine, just like everything else you do in life, you are making this waaaay tooo hard. And, like everything else you’ve decided in your life, it won’t turn out the way you plan it anyway. So, lighten up, have fun with it.”

And, then, I saw him. The person I want to welcome me to the other side. He was a vision dressed in pure white. He wore a sparkling, diamond-encrusted cape over his broad shoulders. He extended his hand and draped a gold scarf around my neck. Then, ELVIS began to sing:


WELCOME TO MY WORLD
WON'T YOU COME ON IN
MIRACLES I GUESS
STILL HAPPEN NOW AND THEN

STEP INTO MY HEART
LEAVE YOUR CARES BEHIND
WELCOME TO MY WORLD
BUILT WITH YOU IN MIND

KNOCK AND THE DOOR WILL OPEN
SEEK AND YOU WILL FIND
ASK AND YOU WILL BE GIVEN
THE KEY TO THIS WORLD OF MINE

I'LL BE WAITING HERE
WITH MY ARMS UNFURLED
WAITING JUST FOR YOU
WELCOME TO MY WORLD
