Today I am joining Lisa-Jo and others for the 5 Minute Friday where we are given a word prompt and write for just 5 minutes simply for the joy of writing. No editing or backtracking necessary. No need to be perfect. Just words freely flowing from my heart to yours.
Do you ever imagine what heaven will be like? I do. I dwell on heaven often, especially on the hard days, the days where you just want to run and hide, never to be seen again.
I imagine a place so beautiful that no words can describe it. A place where the sun always shines, where there are no storms, no dark nights. I imagine a place where everyone smiles at you when you walk by, where please and thank you abound, and where little ones roam freely, without the constant need for parental supervision.
I imagine a place where health and wholeness abound, a place where one will never go hungry or thirsty, where shelter is present and fears no longer exist. I imagine a place with cool, fresh running water, where lush green, rolling hills abound and where animals roam freely.
I imagine a place where love is tangible, where joy resides, a place where the presence of the Lord is a daily encounter. I imagine a place where worship is lifted day and night to the One who sits on the Throne.
Can you imagine what heaven will be like? I know it will be beautiful, but I don’t have the words to describe it. I can only imagine!
