Heaven

Have you ever stopped to consider
what heaven must be like;
knowing Jesus is there constructing,
our eternal homes in paradise?

It’s hard to get our minds around,
Jesus building mansions for us all,
more stupendous than our wildest dreams,
and He’s doing it for all His called.

He who spoke the world into existence
in just six amazing days,
its beauty beyond comprehension,
but the fall got it locked away.

Yet the mansions He is building
have taken much longer to construct
their magnificance more amazing
and He’s doing it just for us.

Their beauty coruscatingly awesome,
rainbow colored, streets of gold;
people clustered about like flowers,
and not a one of them is old.

Imagine eternal presents,
in heaven all things are new;
perfect peace each person’s temperament,
gardens and vineyards all abloom.

Agape love drives our relationships,
it’s like earth without the sin;
night no longer happens,
our jobs joyfully serving Him!

Giant pearls the majestic gateways
diamonds sparkle on the beaches,
the fruit of the spirit our daily nectar
refreshing the lives of those He teaches.

The pool of Salome is there for praising,
His love everywhere resounds,
love has swallowed up faith and hoping
and Jesus’ glory surrounds, abounds.

Does your vision improve in heaven,
do you have kaleidoscope eyes,
seeing things multi-dimensionally
the colors bright, they seem alive;

it’s like they’re animated,
dancing and singing all about,
feelings of wonder, exhilaration,
felicitations whispered all throughout.

Like the garden of Eden,
God’s gift to all mankind,
though we didn’t get to see it,
the snake messed up their minds.

Imagine all the trees and flowers 
and friendly creatures that you’d see
a replica of heaven,
even the weeds appeared pristine.

Human words can’t describe it
the proper adjectives don’t exist,
there’s no noun that captures its grandeur
or the splendor of its bliss.

But its beauty sadly tarnished
by the fall, that cursed sin,
but heaven, years in the making
hasn’t deteriorated one tiny bit.

Our eyes are so amazing how they
search and illuminate what they see;
our spiritual eyes more discerning,
seeing by faith what’s soon to be.

Include some transcendant imagination,
the type that sees what dreams can be;
add to that some wishful thinking
about a perfect earth, eternity;

and you catch a glimpse of heaven
but 2 things need to be factored in,
God’s thoughts are light years beyond ours,
and His creative genius we can’t comprehend.

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.
