Thinkin' it Over

It's odd but there is one thing most people like to do.
To spend a while beside the grave of some one that you knew.
You do it when you've time enough to make a quiet ride.
To see the fleecy clouds above and watch the shadows glide.

You think of things he did and said, and of the ways he had.
And now to think that he is dead. It makes you feel plum sad.
It brings the old days back again, you live them one by one.
You think of things that happened then, and what you should have done.

They say there'll be a Judgment Day when dead men rise again.
So I suppose he'll have to stay just where he is till then.
But then you reckon that the one who made the world knows best.
He takes them when their work is done and lets them have their rest.

And when at last our strength has failed we make our last long ride.
We leave this world and take the trail across the great divide.
So when it's time to make the change we'll go where they have gone.
We'll meet them on another range somewhere in the beyond.

           I was readying this today and I was thinking about what a great knowledge the plan of salvation gives us in this matter. It lets us know that we will meet our loved one's on the other side. What a great piece of information for us to know. It comforts me to know this, and i hope it does you to. If you aren't sure what the plan of salvation is check out this cool link and watch this sweet video to learn more. 

Also if you have any question let me know. let us also remember what we are here for. In the prophet Alma book in the book of Mormon. we read .......
Alma 34: 32 "For behold, this life is the time for men to prepare to meet God; yea, behold the day of this life is the day for men to perform their labors." We need to strive to prepare to meet God in this life. What a wonderful thing. Our goal is to learn of God and see him bless us for striving to learn of him and prepare to meet him. I hope you think about this for the next week or to and prepare to meet God. May God bless you who read this and keep looking for more blog from I, and it is my prayer that they touch your heart some how. God Bless
