Do you think about Heaven everyday? I do. At least once a day I find myself imagining what that will be like. Everyone has some sort of concept of what they think that will look like...to some it is clouds and harps with angels all around, to others it is an endless banquet table full of all their favorite foods, to some it is a garden or painting or some beautiful thing that inspires what they think Heaven will be. I was unsure until recently. I bounced around from harps to clouds to foods and flowers but now I have settled down. After reading "This Beautiful Mess" I have forever changed my idea of Heaven. Here is what I have learned. The Bible tells us that Heaven will be a restored physical world that has never fallen under the curse of sin or death. Beauty all around for us to enjoy forever without the plague of worry, want, pain or agony. Just days to enjoy and spend with loved ones, days to follow God and worship Him. We will exist in a body that is raised in glory. Our days will still have purpose, excitement, joy and freedoms just without the worries that we live with today. I have always longed for these days but it wasn't until recently that I realized that this is what Heaven will be like. All the beauty and splendor that life has to offer but without the drag of being human and living with our sin. Can you imagine it?

C-- I needed that so much today. I get so dragged down by the worries of the world, and sometimes the load is just too much. I needed this perspective-- and HOPE-- this morning.

Seriously just the thought is making my eyes water! I can't wait to see Heaven in all it's glory. I think it will be brighter there too. I think Jesus shines brighter then the sun:)

Plus, I know I will get to see my daughter that I lost almost 5 years ago now and my little Lainie will be completely healed and able to walk with know difficulties!

I want to tell Jesus to hurry up already, but I know he'll come when the time is right!

Thank you for reminding me to long for Heaven!

I always looked forward to a future in heaven but never really thought about that much until my daughter died. After that the promise that she is in the splendor of the Lord and will know no earthly pain was so comforting. I now simply cannot wait to live there in all it's perfection.
