  1. To gather together at the foot of the Throne in Heaven one day. Hallelujah! I look forward to that day, sisters and brothers.
    Caring through Christ, ~ linda

  2. what a wondrous, glorious day that will be! Everything above and below- praising like we’ve never understood how to praise before! My heart and soul are jumping with joy at the thought! beautiful post! #bloggercaregroup

  3. It’s a beautiful thought.

    But I have a feeling that when – or if – I get to heaven, God will give me a drink from a canteen, hand me an M4 and a fresh bandolier, and send me back out into the fight.

    He built me for war, one of the sons of Martha, from Kipling’s poem.

    But I can look through the window, and draw pleasure from the joy I see within, in the family of Mary.

    • Maybe in heaven while Barbie is drinking a cup of tea with friends, you’ll be drinking out of the canteen, Andrew! God manifests himself in different ways to all of us, Andrew!

  4. Your post reminded me of the news of the retreat and how excited everyone is about the prospect of a FMF Retreat 🙂 Can you imagine the FMF Party in Heaven? Wowee!!! I hope you’ll get to come to the retreat. I’d love to meet you!

  5. Yes!! I’m glad to gather here. And I too am glad that someday we will meet, gather and praise his name on the other side of this life. Loved this post!

  6. And, OH, how I pray that that day will come this side of Glory! I love your welcome, Barbie. I always have. I always will. It is wide and beautiful.

  7. Amen, and amen! When I read this I thought, “Barbie, you’ve created a gathering place, right here, right now, this side of heaven.” And you have, sweet friend. I am always blessed when I visit here. Have a lovely day!

  8. Oh how lovely it will be to one day gather in heaven together. So much rejoicing there will be. BUT, I do hope and pray that I have the chance to gather with you this side of heaven too. Love you so much, friend. xoxo

  9. Love how welcoming your post is……perhaps we might, one day, get to meet at an FMF retreat…..wouldn’t that be wonderful?! A room full of all the ladies who bring light to my life on Fridays…..a bunch of ladies so creative and brave and life-affirming/life-giving….{An FMF friend}

  10. I love this and yes it will be so wonderful once we can all gather together in Heaven. I like what you said here, “but we can gather here, where a cup of grace is offered to you freely, no matter where the road of life takes you” Great post my friend, ~Shannan

  11. This is so wonderful. It reminds me of something I read a long time ago. Heaven will be the biggest family reunion ever.

    Hugs to you, my sister,
    (visiting from FMF)
