Angel talk

Just inside the Pearly Gates

Underneath a gorgeous sky

Two angels hovered near a cloud

(They don’t sit like you and I!)

“I just don’t understand it,”

Said angel number one,

“I’ve watched and studied everything

Those foolish souls have done.”

The second angel gave a shrug,

“Why do you even care?

It’s no concern of ours at all

What they choose to do down there.”

“Maybe not,” the first one said,

“But still I’d like to know

With all the blessings they’ve received

What makes them quarrel so?”

The second angel stretched his wings

Then smoothed a ruffled feather,

“It’s just about a hopeless cause

For men to live together.”

“The Master’s working very hard

Has been for generations…..

And still they fight among themselves

causing death and devastation.”

The older angel softly sighed,

“You can’t change things, little one,

The Master’s tried everything

He even sacrificed His Son!!”

The young angel nodded slowly,

“That’s what seems so bad!

He suffered, bled and died for them!

He gave them all he had!”

“Oh, He still has more to give,”

The other looked both sad and wise,

“For I’ve seen Jesus when souls are lost,

And I’ve held Him while He cries.”

“For to Him each one is precious

With a value beyond measure…..

He wants them all up here with Him

To share in Heaven’s treasure.”

“And sometimes, someone down on Earth

Will kneel in fervent prayer

Crying out, ‘Please help me, God!

Show me that You’re there!'”

“And when that happens you will hear

All the bells of Heaven ring!

As the Master’s love pours down like rain

And the Heart of Jesus sings!”
