A few weeks ago, Carol's cousin Bob took us to visit his son in Perkasie, PA. After the visit, we went to a restaurant in Schwenksville, PA, Moccia's Train Stop, an old train station. Neat place! I am usually the first person ready to order, so when I had made up my mind, I looked over the rest of the menu. On the back of the menu was the following...
THE LAST TRAIN
Some day you will climb aboard one last train, and you'll be in for the ride of your life! You won't be traveling the Pennsylvania Railroad or Amtrak out of Philly. This train is, shall we say, "Out of this world."
Once you arrive at the train station, you won't need to purchase a ticket. Your fare has been paid in full. No one will ask for your destination. Your point of arrival has already been decided. And you won't be carrying any luggage. This train has no baggage car.
If you don't like where you're going once your train leaves the station, you can plead with the engineer, but he'll just mumble quietly, "No switching tracks."
A conductor will be responsible for delivering you to the depot at the end of the line, where a bright sign hangs over the station entrance. It says, THE GATE OF NO RETURN.
If you want to know which gate you're at, you can determine your location by the direction the train was traveling. If your train climbed steep tracks up towards the sky and on past the clouds, prepare to enter the light. If your train rolled downwards, way down below the earth, prepare to enter darkness.
Beloved friend, on which track will you be riding?
Where is your final destination?
Remember these words, for they can direct you to the right train for eternity.
TICKET PAID IN FULL BY THE SON OF GOD
