My True Story - - Growing up in the BigCity
Most of my childhood was in the big city of Oakland,
but the city was divided into smaller districts.Each district had their own "coffee
shop" with the regulars, a bank, a post office, a movie house, a drug
store, a couple of named grocery stores, a bakery, a chiropractor, and some
business shops such as an insurance agent, and a shoe repair shop.
These districts existed like a small town and were an island
to many.Every thing near our home was
within walking distance including two Mom and Pop small stores close by.At the coffee shop we could order a fountain
coke and ask for vanilla or other flavors.Our fast food restaurant was a Casper’s
Hot Dog place. A public library was
also near by.
We also had a cow boy of sorts.He was a young man who always wore a cowboy
hat while he rode his bicycle.I think
he was what you might call a bit "slow."Not retarded, just a bit slow.Each neighbor hood had their characters too,
and our cow boy was one of them.
Our city had an excellent bus system with a transfer method
that allowed you to change to another bus without paying extra.
There is safety in numbers and as children we did all our
bus riding with my brother my sister and usually a couple of other friends.
We learned to navigate through our metropolis to down town
shopping, to LakeMerritt to the museum, to go ice skating, or go to
plunge swimming pool.The ride to the
pool required an extra fare when we reached a point where different cities met.
The streets were laid out in neat blocks, and at times we
just took long walks.Mother would go
with us when we hiked to Mill’s College, and to the hills behind it.
Our earthly city was a wonderful place to grow up, and to
later find work there.A place to attend
church, meet friends, to eventually marry and raise our own family within its
I was thinking about the lay out of heaven today, and
remembering that the Bible tells us that the streets are of purest gold, and as
you look through the gold you can see the foundation which is made of precious
jewels.The gates are made of pearls,
and there is a tree of life that all those in heaven may partake of.
The plain truth is that no city on earth regardless of its
beauty or charm can compare with the magnificence of heaven.
I do hope you have made your reservation early, so that
Heaven will be your final home.
You do understand that the decision must be made while here
on earth, because if you wait too long, it will be too late.
