“Yet it is tough knowing that the only time souls will ever be equal is when we die and meet the Lord.”
Ace Collins

“And ye, beneath life’s crushing load Whose forms are bending low, Who toil along the climbing way With painful steps and slow, Look now! for glad and golden hours Come swiftly on the wing: O rest beside the weary road And hear the angels sing.”
Ace Collins, Stories Behind the Best-Loved Songs of Christmas
