He Made It There For Sunday Worship!
Brother Halton Watkins passed from this life late Saturday night. Most of us didn't hear about it until we were at church on Sunday morning, but when I heard, I thought, "How appropriate!"
See, Halton loved nothing better than being in the Lord's House on Sunday morning. He loved to worship "His Jesus," and yesterday, Halton got to worship Jesus in person. Yesterday he got to bow before those precious feet.
There were quite a few tears shed yesterday at church, but all of us are rejoicing with Halton over his homegoing. We sang "First Day in Heaven," and I couldn't hold my tears back as I sang. Because as I sang, I could picture Halton enjoying that first day in heaven (and you know what, it's going to be an eternal day!!)
I'll leave you today with the chorus of that song!
Oh what a day, our first day in Heaven
When we've finished the story untold
I'm gonna sit down with my blessed Savior
And what a day our first day will be
