         "I Shall Meet You There."


                 Some years ago an evangelist announced that he
                would speak the following Sunday on "Heaven."
         It was to be broadcast on radio.During that
                       week he received a letter from an old man who was
very ill. Here is part of that letter.


            Next Sunday you are to talk about "Heaven". I am
              interested in that land because I have held a clear
 title to a bit of property there over 55 years
           I did not buy it. It was given to me without money
     and without price. But the donor purchased it
for me at a tremendous sacrifice. I am not
 holding it for speculation since the title is
 nontransferable. It is not a vacant lot.


                            For more than a half-century I have been sending material
                                   out of which the greatest architect and builder of the universe
                                  has been building a home for me, which will never need to be
                    repaired because it will suit me perfectly, individually,
and will never grow old.


                      Termites can never undermine it's foundation for it
                    rest upon the Rock of Ages.Fire cannot destroy it.
                  Floods cannot wash it away. No locks or bolts will
                      ever be placed upon its doors, for no vicious person
                            can ever enter that land where my dwelling stands, now
               almost completed and ready for me to enter it and
                     abide in peace eternally without fear of being ejected.


                 There is a valley of deep shadow between the place
             where I live in California and that to which I shall
             journey in a very short time. I cannot reach my
               home in the City of GOD without passing through
                            the dark valley of shadows. But I am not afraid, because
                    the best friend that I have ever had went through the
                 same valley alone, a long,long time ago and drove
            away all the gloom. He stuck by me through thick
               and thin since we first met and became acquainted
                     55 years ago, and I hold His promise in printed form,
                             never to forsake nor to leave me alone. He will be with me
                        as I walk through the valley of shadows,and I shall not
 lose my way when He is with me.


                        I hope to hear your sermon on "Heaven" next Sunday
                      from my home, but I have no assurance that I shall be
                      able to do so. My ticket to heaven has no date marked
                for the journey, no return coupon and no permit for
                    baggage. Yes, I am ready to go and may not be here
                 while you are talking next Sunday, but  I shall meet
 you there some day.
