    I sit on death row,
    Yet eternal life awaits.
    Death...where is your sting?

    Yep, sistah Joyce......

    When one knows that they are going home to be with our Creator & Savior, then death has lost it's sting..... how many folk can truly say that they are not afraid of death because they know they are going to be with Jesus in Heaven?

    This is a great haiku Joyce!

    Thanks for sharing it!

    To be absent in the body
    is to be present in the Lord
    Death has been defeated
    you may conquer the body
    but not the spirit....


    I like this flow.

    Bishop,

    Amen and amen. Those who are persecuted for their faith, stand on this very scripture in the bible. Thanks for feeling me on this one.
