I woke up this early this morning surprised to see
That my wife was not sleeping next to me.
Not only was she gone. But, her clothes were still there
When did she go? Why? & Where?
In the midst of my confusion, like opening some stuck jars lid.
A voice in my head screamed “what about the kids”!
I ran to each bedroom and no one was there
Just their clothes under the sheets left without a care.
What should I do? Should I call the police?
I went to my living room but still there was no peace.
Maybe they all went out? Or did we get into a fight?
There’s something going on here that does not seem right.
I turned on the TV to calm down a bit
Flicked through the channels and went to my recliner to sit.
But each channel had the same news flashing across the screen
Thousands went missing no longer to be seen.
As I surfed up the channels all the same news except this one.
This pastor crying the blues “Oh GOD what have I done?”
Why have you forsaken me? Why wasn’t I called up with you? You blessed me with fame and fortune in everything that I do.
He fell to his knees begging oh please GOD please.
Why wasn’t I chosen with the rest of these?
He fell so hard that I thought his legs he would fracture
Then he started yelling “don’t y’all understand”?
We are in the midst of the rapture!!!
GOD has called all his children to be with HIM
And if your hearing this message then you guilty of sin…
What’s with this guy let me get this right.
GOD took my wife and kids in the middle of the night.
And all those others that I saw on TV
Did HE take them all too? And no one did see?
Or maybe some mother ship came in the middle of the night?
To take them back to their planet in some far away galactic flight?
Wait a second I believe in aliens but not in GOD
This don’t make sense I find this real odd…
Is what that pastor said true, did I hear him right
We who are left behind are going to be in some spiritual fight…
And we are all going down river
Like some garbage on a barge…
And will feel pain and suffering with the devil in charge.
Oh my head is spinning is this for real?
Deep down inside I know it is
This is what I feel…
What can I do to make this all right?
I should have read the Bible with my wife and children each and every night…
Then I fell to my knees and cried please GOD please
The tears made a puddle as I lowered my head…
Just then I woke with a start…back in my bed
There in my bed I was surprised to see
My wife sleeping right next to me…
My face still wet from the tears I did cry
I was given a second chance I whispered as I looked up I could not deign…
In my nightstand I grabbed my Bible my book
The one I seldom opened or even took a look.
The dust on it was thick so I wiped it off
And woke my wife when I started to cough.
She said what are you doing it’s the middle of the night
I was so glad to see her I felt such delight…
I had a dream about the rapture and you were all taken
It was so real I could not be mistaken.
Silly she said we are all still here
Now go back to sleep it was just a dream my dear…
As she started to turn to go back to sleep
I said wait please read with me and I started to weep…
What’s gotten into you? You want to read?
It’s the middle of the night!!!
She turned and saw The Bible in my hands
And her face lit up with delight…
Boy that must have been some dream
To get YOU to read the LORD’S book
Come on we are wasting time I cried
Lets open it and give it a look…
Well that’s the story of a dream of mine
Please don’t forget to read your Bible
Don’t YOU waste too much time.
Don’t’ forget it’s GOD’S Holy Book…
Come on take some time and give it a look…
