Just short of glory

He stopped just short of glory

and laid his burden down;

then stepped upon the golden shore

and won the victor’s crown.

I do not ask to bring him back;

though heartache touched us here.

But just remember where he’s gone

and what is waiting there.

He waits today within a land

we’ve only read about;

and looking back, he waves us on,

erasing fear and doubt.

      Thank you, Jingle, Mac’s death changed the landscape of Heaven for us. How wonderfully comforting to know where he is. Donna
