KEEP THE MAIN THING THE MAIN THING!

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

TEXT:

Matthew 6: 33 But seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.

Acts 13: 22 --- I have found David the son of Jessie, a man after mine own heart, which

shall fulfill all my will.

Luke 6:37 ---- forgive and ye shall be forgiven: 38. Give and it shall be given unto you,

good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom.

For with what ever you measure it shall be measured unto you!

Life has set this old boy to pondering again, thinking about life and death, friends and time.

We get so busy at Christmas, OR IN DAILY LIFE, we lose focus, we forget the main thing.

The Main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing. By the way what is the main thing?

I wrote this for WADE M. HUGHES, my Dad’s 69th birthday. 2/7/1931.

DON’T FORGET HEAVEN!

BY Wade Martin Hughes, Sr

2/07/2000

Today, be reminded of something very important...

Don’t forget heaven.

You are busy, the journey has been long,

You are so very tired.

Lack of sleep and terrible dreams rob your rest,

Not all share your vision, with great enthusiasm & respect...

But don’t forget heaven.

Trials and tribulations press on every side,

Dark clouds virtually hide God’s plan from view....

Don’t forget heaven.

Sickness and pain and hurt, leave a seemly endless trail of tears.

You are not over the last wound, and you are wounded again....

Don’t forget heaven.

You feel like a failure and feel no one sees your kind deeds.

The trophy case is empty, the letters of recognition few,

At times you almost doubt your call....

Don’t forget heaven.

The money is not there, the budget looks bleak.

Debt grows, pressure builds...

Don’t forget heaven.

You can’t remember the last time there was a word of encouragement,

The medicine of laughter has been stolen from your heart,

Joy seems so elusive ...

Don’t forget heaven.

Loneliness smothers your breath of life,

Separation by death has taken a voice of support & wisdom,

Time has removed a friend.

Misunderstanding & rejection has brought a sense of loss ...

Don’t forget heaven.

Bars of bone imprison my soul and spirit,

When will I ever be free?

Don’t forget heaven.

Don’t forget heaven...

Our home is ahead, prepared by the Master.

A few more tears, a few more valleys,

A few more trudging uphill climbs,

See, Look there, the lights of HOME beckon for me....

Don’t forget heaven.

I am not going down,

My eyes peer over yon’ eastern hill,

The angel practices his "REUNION REVEILLE,"

The stable prepares the white horse.

My groom, my love makes ready.

The invitation has arrived,

"Come for all things all now ready!"

Friend, DON’T FORGET HEAVEN.

WE ARE ALMOST HOME.

DON’T FORGET HEAVEN!

Let’s meet at Jesus’ feet

The same time that separates us, will one day bring us together forever, until then we must ---

#1) forgive, ---- then be---

#2) faithful no matter what, ----

#3) faith, we must keep the faith, faith is an action word, not a reaction.

You, are special, you are unique. Friends are the flowers of life. Each one different, each one beautiful in their own way.
