When I crossed over….I discovered I had a NEW body! Before I took my last breath and my heart gave up its last fight…God whispered ..reassuring me “I come to do a NEW thing” Yes…family as he proceeded with the invocation saying “Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter NOW thou into the joy of thy Lord” he concluded my earthly dismissal preparing me for eternal life saying “Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Savior, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever…” that’s when I HEARD the chains falling….so (go ahead be my guest) pick them up and give them to somebody else because I’M FREE!!!!!!! And who the Son has set free….he is truly FREE indeed. So…please don’t worry…fret not…It’s alright NOW!!!! I’m Freeeee!!!!!
