Not All Good Things Must Come To An End
The fellowship of friendship
The laughter and the fun;
The moments in our life that make
The long race worth the run
The precious gift of family
The smiles, the jokes, the hugs
Are what we find we live for;
It’s how we know we’re loved.
But, you know what they say,
That all good things must end
That nothing lasts forever;
On naught we can depend
The people we’ve grown close to
Must sometimes part their way.
The sweet times end, when scarce begun;
How we wanted them to stay!
And all of life is like that,
At least, the things on earth;
But for the child of God
Who has experienced new birth,
There is special secret;
A truth that is for sure.
There’s something good that will not end,
A promise that’s secure:
We have a home in glory
Beyond the heavenly blue,
And there in perfect bliss abide
Our fellowship renew.
It quietly awaits us,
Beyond our weary way
Calls to our remembrance
A brighter land one day.
And that will last forever,
It’s the only thing that will.
Not all those good things need to end,
There’s a place they’ll go on still.
Joy will be eternal;
Never more we’ll part.
Circled ’round the throne of Grace,
Never to depart.
Ponder this, when dark days come
And thoughts are sad and lonely.
When happy moments take their flight:
There is a great day coming!
Rest in this when rings the cry
That – ‘Nothing lasts forever!’
For we have hope eternally,
And joy that none can sever.
I Thessalonians 4:17-18 “Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
Nina came to know the Lord as a teenager, and is grateful for the Lord’s grace and mercy in her life as she has sought to grow in her relationship with Christ through the years.
She and her husband currently attend Lehigh Valley Baptist Church and enjoy being a part of the ministries there. Along with being a wife and homemaker, she is thrilled to be able to teach music lessons to a number of piano students in the area. Poetry and meditational or motivational writings based on scripture have also remained one of her passions through the years!
Just beautiful, Nina! And so very uplifting! Thanks!
