LOOKING FORWARD TO…

Where is this City called Heaven?

Explain this City of God!

First place I do not think He has to!

Explain anything that is above!

.

.

What He has made will surprise us!

Nothing we assemble comes near!

The noise and strife of large cities

But up there, who knows, just cheer!

.

.

Some folk like the excitement,

The rush, the roar and the rage.

They will miss all that noise in Heaven!

If they get there!  Next page!

.

.

But look up!  Here comes an Angel!

He is here, no wings, speed of Grace.

They are everywhere!  They are not noisy!

So happy!  Smile on his face!

.

.

Hey, look now!  More now are coming!

Were not!  But suddenly here!

Delirious with joy they are to see us!

Nor do they mind coming near!

.

.

Bad breath?  Oh, no!  Not in Heaven!

Rotting bodies?  No more!

Clad in the bodies, Spirit, God, man!

Made for that heavenly shore!

.

.

Angels wish to show us their country!

The blessed City of God!

Sorrow, sin burdens all absent!

Nothing to pity above!

.

.

If you feel you need something to pity,

The sun, do not need it up there!

The light, though brilliant, not hurting!

Comes from a Presence so fair!

.

.

So fair remember a shambles

Of sweating the heat below!

Not to mention the glare, no sunglasses!

Here bright everywhere, no glow!

.

.

So what are we missing?  Everything!

What have we left behind?

Nothing of everlasting value!

All that of sin denied!

.

.

All ecstatic!  No frowns anywhere,

Just how to explain such joy?

What to explain?  Sadness nowhere!

When we in God’s presence employ!

.

.

No sadness, no sickness, no death!  So grim!

Well, what did you think you would find?

There is nothing imperfect, find freedom from sin!

All good things God designed!

.

.

How do I know all this?  It is in the Book, “I go to prepare a place for you…” and “In my Father’s house…many dwelling places…that where I am there you may be also.”  Is not that enough?
