The guest DJ for the Judgment card is Theresa Reed.
Theresa is here and has lots of new goodies on her site for readers and clients. Spend some time there, you won't be sorry. And I've got nothing to add to Judgment. What a beautiful story -thank you for sharing it, T.

Judgment is about awakening and rebirth. It's the card of "hearing the call" but it also is a reminder that a phase is coming to an end and it's time to take stock of where you've been. This song has a deep personal meaning for me. When my father was dying, we spoke about how he was "ready" to die and how satisfied he was with his life. He was 94 years old and had lived a long time - he was tired and was prepared to meet his maker. One of the last things he said to me was "I think God is coming to take me. I just want this to end." He slipped in and out of consciousness for a few days. On the eve of his death, I was alone with him for a bit and I sang this song to him quietly. I wanted him to know that even though he was leaving, he was not alone and that we would see each other soon again. He passed away a few hours later. I cannot think of this song without remembering that night. -TR
