For the New Year!
A Glimpse of Heaven!
I was whisked away to Heaven, it truly must have been a dream!
How else could I be writing this, and telling you what I had seen?
The streets are transparent gold, I can't believe my eyes!
It's as though I am floating, in the Heavenly skies!
The multi colored city walls, are made of precious stone.
And everywhere you walk to, you are never there alone!
Everywhere you look to see, are God's people big and small.
Most amazing to me is that, I knew the names of them all!
Overflowing with great joy, were those with whom I spoke.
No one was in pain or crippled, nor even a heart that was broke!
It wasn't lit by sun or moon, but by God's glorious light!
I have never before seen such a beautiful sight!
Then in the light's midst, a humbling figure I did gaze!
Jesus my Lord and King, falling to my knees I offered Him praise!
I was overwhelmed as Jesus took hold of my hand!
"Welcome home" He said to me, and then He lifted me so I could stand!
He gave me a hug, and we began to walk.
I listened intently, as Jesus did talk!
We came to a stop, and I looked at His face.
I said "Thank you for the cross and taking my place!"
"Thank you for sacrificing your blood and life for me.
So I can stay here with You for all eternity!"
