Way back yonder Miss Rosie was 30 and was studying Elizabeth Keebler Ross (sp) "Death and Dying" and suddenly realized she was not going to live forever. Miss Rosie's mid-life crisis came a bit early at age 30. I would say that I was depressed facing my mortality. It was a rude awakening and a cruel reality.....I was not going to live forever. Technology could not save me, and will not save me and I will leave this earth as we all will, and......
Miss Rosie ponders.....why is that so bad? If I accept that I will not live forever then why would I try to escape or deny eternal life. What's wrong with eternal life? Why is it scary? Because I have to die to get there? Duh......we all will use up our bodies, they are not meant to last forever.
The question is.....where do I want to go after the body is used up.....Miss Rosie votes for eternal life. Sounds pretty awesome.....How do I get that???
.....I just have to believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth;
And in Jesue Christ, His only Son, our Lord Who was:
conceived by the Holy Ghost
born of the Virgin Mary
suffered under Pontius Pilate
was crufified, dead, and buried
He descended into hell.
The third day He arose again from the dead
He ascended into heaven,
and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost,
the holy catholic Church
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting. Amen
Miss Rosie knows this can be scary to some, she knows the world's consensus is to keep God quiet, private, not to be talked about.....Miss Rosie also knows that Faith in God needs to shine, needs to burn, needs to be in the upper levels of our mind. Bring God to the surface of your mind on a daily basis and you will marvel at the choices you make.
Okay...for those who say BUNK (or something worse) Miss Rosie is not stuck on the buzz word of today....tolerance. Miss Rosie knows that our Lord and eternal life is either true or false....there is no middle ground and it is Miss Rosie's choice to say it's true and it's Miss Rosie's choice to put her faith on electronic paper since shouting it from the roof tops is out of the question for now....maybe some day....if the right roof top appears. For now I will just shout it from my car and the sign at my business.....it feels good..........
