Dearest Eileen Ann
Are you my Annie Oakley?
There is an Oakley Road, Eileen – across the street from where you lived on Glen Road
Eileen, yesterday, I was noticing a gospel tract on my desk
The title on its front is:
“The Promise of Heaven”
And I was seeing your name in some of the letters of that title, like this:
O is for O’Gara
E is for Eileen
EA in the word Heaven is for Eileen Ann
And the N at the end of Heaven
Is also the last letter of Eileen
And the last letters of Ann
And just as Heaven is forever, Eileen
Those who believe in the gospel will live forever in Heaven, Eileen Evergreen
In God’s Everlasting Love
And Eileen Ann Evergreen . . .
There is a street in Heaven that God tells us about in His Word
“Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be anything cursed, but the thrown of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him. They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.” -Revelation 22:1-5 ESV Study Bible.
Will you be His, Eileen? Will you believe in Him?
Will you let Him take you to Heaven?
I had another thought early this morning while drinking my tea and thinking of you;
I was remembering Romper Room the TV show when we were little children;
And also something Jesus said came to mind:
“At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” -Matthew 18:1-4. ESV Study Bible.
The lady of Romper Room on TV would look through her “magic window” and say something like: “I see Peter and I see Paul and I see Mary most of all.”
Eileen, by the grace of God through faith in the gospel of the Son of God, will you let the baby Jesus be born in your heart? If you are willing, Eileen, He will give you new birth; and He will grow up in you to the full stature of Christ in you the hope of glory, according to the Scriptures that are all written by inspiration of the Holy Spirit of God. And the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth and the Spirit of understanding. Will you believe that the gospel of Christ and all of the Holy Scriptures are the Truth from True God; and receive the Understanding that God’s Word gives us who believe; and live in the faith of Jesus Christ; and walk after His Holy Spirit in your daily life by the assistance of the Helper, Whom Jesus sends into the hearts of those who believe in Him — our Savior, the Son of God?
