Memory Lane...there are few songs that reach so deep within, they touch the heritage of faith poured into me through my grandma, Geraldine Voyles. She was a carrier of the true gospel passed down from generations past. But so alive in her, if you were in her presence, you may as well have glimpsed eternity. It was that rich. Her Spirit was like a time-machine. Not one you stepped into, but one her heart encamped you with and tethered you straight back to 33 AD. I long to be a generation that connected to the Cross. Where 2000 years has nothing on you. Heritage...it's a glorious thing and those in Him have it, praise be to the God of our inheritance!
This song is one of those songs that allows me to recount the earthly legacy I've been given by the great cloud of witnesses that have gone before me and await my return alongside our Father. Some of which not too long ago carried with them from a far off land the ripple of Calvary, that has landed on the shore of my heart.
Be encouraged today...we're headed Home! Hebrews 10:24
Life is like a mountain railroad
With an engineer that's brave
We must make the run successful
From the cradle to the grave
Watch the curves, the hills, and tunnels
Never falter, never fail
Keep your hand upon the throttle
And your eyes upon the rail
Blessed Savior, Love will guide us
Till we reach that blissful shore
Where the angels wait to join us
In that great forevermore
p.s. I really like her red lipstick.
