Heaven - The Rose Without The Thorn

"Rose without a thorn"
You alone are the LORD. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them.
You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you.

This amazing image by the Hubble Space Telescope shows the complex interaction between two galaxies known as UGC 1810 and UGC 1813. Go ahead, click the picture and simply gaze at it for a moment and reflect.

How often do you think about Heaven? If we turned our thoughts toward Heaven more, I believe that would change our perception of life now. There was a brother at church who would call me out of the blue and with excitement in his voice say, "Hey, just calling to say hi. Wanna talk about what Heaven might be like?" Each talk we had together we spoke about Heaven. Truly those conversations brought me so much peace and excitement. The main thought that always comes to my mind first about Heaven is being with God.

Try it! Take a look at scriptures with the word "Heaven" in them and talk about Heaven more! Ask others to dream with you about what it will be like to get to be with God, to see Him, to hear His laugh, to see the four creatures and meet those flawed yet faithful folks you read about in the bible, to sing songs to God with them and with angels by your side or to experience only joy, happiness, and fun. I hope that just thinking and talking about it makes your day a little easier.
