It's All Grace

Amazing things can happen when you allow the Lord to work in your life.

Expiration Dates

on August 14, 2013

Food that is perishable has an expiration date.  As I was talking with one of my children about the milk in the fridge and its expiration date, I began to explain how each person has an expiration date as well.  Every day that we live, we are one day closer to the expiration date that has been put on our lives by the God who created us!  It’s our tendency as humans to “live like we are never going to die”, yet nothing could be further from the truth.

Today might be your expiration date.   Are you ready to walk through the door of eternity?

This reminded me of a song by The Crumpton Family called, “I’m Flying Home”

I’m flying home, to that mansion in the sky,

I’ve got a one-way ticket, but I won’t need a plane to fly,

Destination settled, Departure time unknown

My fare is paid in full & I’m flying home!

Hey there Mr. Pilot, in your big old DC9,

Please don’t be surprised to see me leaving you behind,

Ground control don’t worry, if your radar can’t find me,

I’ll be flying much too fast for you to see!

I’m flying home, to that mansion in the sky,

I’ve got a one-way ticket, but I won’t need a plane to fly,

Destination settled, Departure time unknown

My fare is paid in full & I’m flying home!

Won’t need to make connections, I have a non-stop flight,

I might be leaving in 30 years, or I just might leave tonight!

I won’t be flying first class or economy,

I won’t be needing frequent flyer miles to fly for free,

I won’t need a super saver, cause I have a special Saviour,

So, get your boarding pass and fly with me!

I’m flying home, to that mansion in the sky,

I’ve got a one-way ticket, but I won’t need a plane to fly,

Destination settled, Departure time unknown

My fare is paid in full & I’m flying home!
