Heaven Waits For Me

I heard this song - "Heaven Waits For Me" - on the way to work this morning.  It is sung by Jenny Simmons, and it really spoke to me. I could NOT stop smiling after I heard it! Its truth was just so powerful, and I found myself saying Amen, Amen, and Amen all the way to my job.

It was a moment.  A count your many blessings, Jamie, kinda moment. 

Read the lyrics.  Listen to the song.  Be blessed!

Today's forget-me-not: Heaven waits for me, and I for it!

My feet are deep down in the sand
The waves are pouring life into my soul
It's clear to me from where I stand
There's nothing else I want in this old world

I'm not afraid of letting go
If today's my last day, you should know

That I've loved so many people
And I've traveled this great world
Yeah I've spent time with Jesus
And I've held my little girl
I'm not holding back for next year
I'm living for today
When I take my final breath
I know I'm ready
Heaven waits for me

My husband is the strongest man
All our family and our friends make me smile
Yeah I've had my share of broken dreams
Sleepless nights and suffering
But all the while
That don't matter in the end
Cause I've loved so many people
And I've traveled this great world
Yeah I've spent time with Jesus
And I've held my little girl
I'm not holding back for next year
I'm living for today
When I take my final breath
I know I'm ready
Heaven waits for me
Yeah, Heaven waits for me

Maybe I'll go quietly
In my sleep with you next to me
Maybe it's a slow goodbye
Or I'm out of here in the blink of an eye
No matter how I leave this place
I know I'll see my Savior's face
With the ones I love right next to me
It's a beautiful thing,
Oh, life's a beautiful thing

Cause I've loved so many people
And I've traveled this great world
I've spent some time with Jesus
And I've held my little girl
I'm not holding back for next year
I'm living for today
When I take my final breath
I'm not leaving with regrets
I know I'm ready
Heaven waits for me
Oh yeah, Heaven waits for me
