Think of the absolute best day you ever have had
It’s a foretaste of heaven where sad becomes glad.

No badness, no illness, just unspeakable joy
Like a child at Christmas with all of his toys.

The one constant in heaven is God’s energizing, pulsating love,
That generates, consummates and sustains all that’s above.

It’s the beauty of the mountains, the thrill of the beach
And what makes it so wonderful is your Lord’s within reach.

It’s as marvelous as sunsets and stars twinkling at night
and flowers in the garden with their colors so bright.

Every minute like the moment when the two become one
exhilaration and ecstasy that can’t be outdone.

Every person as close as two peas in a pod
wrapped in the arms of your Savior and God.

No longer struggling to Emmaus, now walking streets of gold
where youth is eternal and you can believe what you’re told.

Disease, self-absorption, now things of the past,
replaced by a peace and joy that forever will last.

The mansions Jesus’ preparing we can’t comprehend
and to think our joy is forever and it can’t ever end.

Each job will be something we can’t wait to do
but the work won’t be labor and no projects overdue.

On earth faith, hope and love were the three wise men
but two fade away by the love we at last comprehend.

Faith and hope become pure truth with the lover of souls
where He’s all that matters and what in part is now whole.

Perhaps that best describes heaven, it’s where love rules God’s domain
And it’s the pure love of our Savior, the lamb of God that does reign.

But what makes heaven so marvelous isn’t the beauty that abounds
but the presence of Jesus and God’s glory all around.

About menmourningmoments

I'm happily married, the Father of 2 sons and 2 daughters and 4 beautiful grandchildren. Death is all around us but somehow we've managed to distance ourselves from it. Men, Mourning, Moments is about how the death of my son awakened me to life & the desire to seize every moment as though it were my last. It's about making sense of life in the good times and bad and allowing GOD to carry me and teach me through the hard times in life.
