LAZARUS…The New Testament

Lazarus…The New Testament

Thanks…thanks a lot.

All this was so that YOU might believe—
no one asked me what I believed.

I already BELIEVE.

My life on earth was so full.
I wasn’t waiting to die to live.
I lived…I was ready to die.
I’m really not sure I’m ready to be back.

I could tell you what it’s like, but would you
really believe?  I think not.  You see…you
will not be back here again…
yes, you heard correctly—most of you will not be
coming back like me.

Don’t wait to live…
Don’t say it will all be well in the next life.
Trust…you are the “Sun.”
Shine and ‘see’ the glow in everyone you meet.

Yes, I’m back.
You can believe me or not.
Heck, would you really trust someone who has been raised from the
“Because I could not stop for Death, he kindly stopped for me.”
