"I saw Heaven and earth new-created. Gone the first Heaven, gone the first earth, gone the sea.
I saw Holy Jerusalem, new-created, descending resplendent out of Heaven, as ready for God as a bride for her husband.
My "Taste of Heaven" here fills so much of me, many times I don't want to let it go. Why? Because there are more times often than not, I am just plain out selfish. When I am focusing on me and getting my voids filled by persons and things, rather than letting go in anticipation of Eternity. In my trying to hang onto these "Taste of Heaven", I become like a self-centered child. When the unfairness of life steps in - and it will - anger, bitterness, unforgiveness seeps in as I focus more on what I don't have, instead of what He has blessed me with.
These past few days my heart is so full. The gift of having all of us together - at any given time - any place. Days which have flown by in a blur, as we prepare for the engagement party this Saturday.
