Greetings, readers! This past weekend I had the pleasure of sunshine and a dad ready to take me on a photography outing in our neighborhood. Spring has truly sprung, and many beautiful blooms adorn the town. Please enjoy what I captured, along with some thoughts and songs on eternity.
Spring is a time of new life, but those of us who have trusted in Christ look forward to an even brighter awakening than the change of seasons. We have a perfect eternity with our Lord awaiting us. Life leaves us with unsatisfied longings. Though we must learn contentment, there is a certain yearning for complete fulfillment that nothing on this earth ever gives. Happily, we can know that someday our hope for a life without sadness, loneliness, or pain will one day come to fruition. Heaven is waiting...
'Cause heaven is waiting
Just past the horizon
Just over the mesas
Across the great divide
And faith is blazing
This trail that I ride on up this mountain
I'm prayin' I have the strength to climb
Rich Mullins, Heaven is Waiting (song here)
Life's always felt like a long and endless dream
Where tests and trials bring you to the final wake up scene
Now I'm not saying, I'll ever waste a day
I'm just gonna live like I was never meant to stay
And I, I'm on the outside
Earthly good with heaven on my mind
And I, I'm just a passer by
Home's a place where I have yet to be
Jadon Lavik, On The Outside (song here)
Home's a place where I have yet to be.
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for,
the conviction of things not seen.
