Last night when I came home from my WAG meeting, David had the TV on the show 'Touch by An Angel', and it was one of my favorite episode Psalm 151. The story is about a boy, Petey, who is on the waiting list for a lung transplant. When he overhears some nurses talking about the next time he is hostipalize he would die, the boy makes out a list of what he wants to accomplish. You can say this was the first Buckle List movie. He only has about 9 items on his list, one is for his mom to finish the song that she started to write when he was born. Since he was sickly, she never finished it. This song is one of my favorites songs, Testify to Love.
Below is a web site for the words and at the top of the page, you can click on listen now..Listen to the song... it is a great song... then ask yourself do you testify to love? Testifying to Love can be a challenge when life becomes a struggle, but then that is what God expects his people to do... testify to His love even when we have struggles and heart breaks... sometimes when we testify, we might realize that our life struggles are not as bad as we think they are or that God is there with you, holding you and comforting you as you cry...(I often think that God is crying with us. I don't think that He likes it when we are hurting.)
As my mentor, Carolyn Shields, use to tell me... praise God in everything...the rough times and the good times... Testify to His Love... and He will bless you in more ways than you will know...
Some of items on Petey's list:
A flag so the angels could find him..
A special gift for his friend...
to be able to die at home
#5 for his mom to finish her song
#9 To go to Heaven..
Maybe we all should have #9 on our bucket list.. for us to go to heaven and sit at the right hand of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Have a blessed weekend..
