When I’m Gone (Dedicated to Shirley Anzaldua)

Posted on February 28, 2015

When I’m gone, Remember me, Not what brought me down, Remember me. When I’m gone, Reflect how I loved, Not that I am absent. Remember me. When I’m gone, Picture my smile, Not that I had cancer. Remember me. When I’m gone, Imagine my red bouncing hair, Not that I was taken too early. Remember me. When I’m gone, Think of how I loved to sing and dance, Not that you miss me. Remember me. When I’m gone, Remember how I shared the gospel, Not that you are without me. Remember I am with Jesus. When I’m gone, Just remember me. Advertisements

     I was hosting a youth gathering at my home recently where I showed them a recorded message from Francis Chan. In the message Chan talked about how we receive so many messages and do nothing with them. He gave the analogy of telling his daughter to clean her room and she didn’t do it until about the fourth time of being told. He said what if his daughter came back like we do with how we treat the word and direction we’ve been given by God’s word. “Dad I wrote down what you told me about cleaning my room, Dad, I memorized that you said to clean my room and finally Dad, some of my friends and I are going to start…
