If you get there before I do, don’t give up on me.
I’ll meet you when my chores are through. But I don’t know how long I’ll be.
But I’m not gonna let you down. Just you wait and see.
So between now and then, till I see you again, I’ll be loving you.
In my lifetime, many of my friends and relatives have gone on to our father’s kingdom. I wish I could have performed this song for them before I lost them. Unfortunately, I did not have that opportunity. If I had had the chance, I would have liked to reassure them that, although they got there before me, they still live within my heart. I still remember the love we had for each other and the joys we shared. Someone once said that, as long as people live in your heart, they never really die. If that is true, then the people who have blessed me throughout my life will always be with me.
I also like to believe that, just as they are live within my spirit, I am still alive within theirs. We have all heard stories of spirits returning to their favorite places. I even received a letter from a young lady who believed she was being visited by the spirit of her deceased boyfriend. You can find it at http://opng8.org/ghostlyencounter.html. As I told the writer, and just like the lady in the song, we all have chores to do before we rejoin our Father. But we should never let the cares of the moment distract us from loving Him. It also wouldn’t hurt to let Him know every now and then that, although we may still be occupied with the chores He has set before us, we will indeed be loving him.
We might also consider this as a letter from Jesus to us. He has not yet returned for us but that does not mean we should give up on Him. He will return for us when our chores are through. And between now and then, till I see Him again, I’ll be loving Him.
