Yep. I'm following you like a shadow, today, John!
This afternoon, while I was relaxing my back, I flipped on the TV (I rarely watch tv)
and it was one of those Discovery type shows on "N.D.E.'s -- Near Death Experiences."
I've had a few of those so it got my attention.
Then, I started thinking back to the last one I had -- when I got hit by lightening.
I don't remember hearing a voice saying to me "you've got to go back".
I only remember hearing my own voice -- as I was floating in the air,
looking down on my shaking body -- and I was saying
"God -- If I'm leaving now -- please send someone soon to finish the stuff that I still have left to do. There are some people that are having a difficult time taking care of themselves -- and they're depending on me."
My realization was: All the stuff that I remember that I still had to do -- is done.
So, I was trying to remember if there was something left on my Life's "To-Get Finished List."
I so relate with -- looking at innocent & blameless children, and young families
and getting some goose-bumps, while thinking and praying that
"God, please feel free to use me in any way possible -- if I can make a difference in the outcomes of their lives."
