Some words to think about

Our son, Kyle was asked to speak in church today about the 2014 Young Men's and Young Women's Theme:  Come unto Christ.  Kyle did an excellent job with his talk.  BUT my favorite part was this poem he shared.  He said his mission presidents wife posted it today. 
The Best Poem In The World
I was shocked, confused, bewildered
As I entered Heaven's door,
Not by the beauty of it all,
By the lights or its decor.
But it was the folks in Heaven
Who made me sputter and gasp--
The thieves, the liars, the sinners,
the alcoholics, the trash.
There stood the kid from seventh grade
Who swiped my lunch money twice.
Next to him was my old neighbor
Who never said anything nice.
Herb, who I always thought
Was rotting away in hell,
Was sitting pretty on cloud nine,
Looking incredibly well.
I nudged Jesus, "What's the deal?
I would love to hear Your take
How'd all these sinners get up here?
God must've made a mistake.
And why's everyone so quiet
So somber? Give me a clue."
"Hush, child," said He "They're all in shock.
No one thought they'd see you."
