THIS SIDE OF HEAVEN

THIS SIDE OF HEAVEN

As the morning sun begins to rise,
And I watch the beauty unfold.
I know Your Mighty Hand has painted,
With perfection the artistry we behold.

The beginning of another day,
What surprises will we be given?
I cannot imagine what it looks like there,
With so much beauty this side of Heaven.

With mankind in such continual turmoil,
With the world coming apart at the seam,
If we take time to watch the sunset,
Does it not show us how much joy that He brings?

If we were just all willing to listen,
Help each other, and get rid of our pride,
We might begin to discover a new era,
This side of Heaven as He walks by our side.

Each new day brings with it a challenge,
Just be willing to follow him with joy.
The world that we share could be just as free,
As where He stands on that far away shore.

We can all make a difference if we listen,
And carry His message each day.
Then those who accept the Precious Lamb of God,
Will be with us forever to stay.

On this Side of Heaven, time is finished !
Tomorrow we’ll gather on that new distant shore.
No longer will the darkness surround us,
Because on this side, His Light shines evermore.

My Dear Sweet Charge.....What a fantastic poem you have penned here. It definitely is inspired by God. Each word settles the heart and soothes the soul. This should make people take a minute and look around at all the glorious blessings God has heaped upon us. Trust me when I tell you heaven is unbelievably gorgeous! The colors, sights, sounds and aromas are nothing like we have seen, heard or smelled here on earth, as they are all perfect in heaven. You just keep getting better and better, my sweet one. This truly is a masterpiece. Thank you for sharing this with everyone. God is very, very pleased with you, my dear one.

May God continue to embrace you and Michael with His loving, healing arms and may He send many blessings into your lives.

Love You,

This is so heartfelt, tender, and reaching for ones' heart. Just a most brilliant work of art that the Lord has given to you. I just really love this. The message is so needed these days, especially these days. What a beautiful v----this wil make. Thanking you for sending the link. I apologize though for not coming sooner. Was installing a security program and it took amost 2 hours. Definitely 10 Stars ********** God bless.
Live today as if it were your last, for tomorrow it will be your past, but live it with peace in mind, joy to find, and for God divine!

Hey Pokey,

Thank you for such a sweet comment. I just love having "friends" review my writings. You are so good to me. The eyes that I have been looking through of late, have not been my own. I have been blinded by the world of man around me instead of what God has done. Somehow today, things are shiney again and I am rejoicing. I am so blessed and God is so good.

And..........I have the sweetest friends in all the world. I luvs you, sweet Pokey Bee......and I love Jeffie Poo and I REALLY LOVE THE LORD! Have a blessed day cuz you sure have blessed mine.

Love your forever!!!

Thank you my sweet Angel Beverly. You are always so encouraging to me. I thank you for your extra prayers for me lately. I feel much more myself today and I give God the glory because He has heard and answered all the prayers.

You are a blessing to me and Michael everyday. Don't know what I'd do without my Angel and that wisecracking Marine of yours. He is just a character...........! Thank you for taking time to visit me and read my poem. You are my favorite person in the world to hear laugh. It just makes my day!

Love you, sweet one, and truly thanks so much!

Dearest Steve,

You don't ever need to apologize to me for being "late" with anything. The way I've been functioning lately, it is a wonder anyone bothers to stop by. I know that you have been struggling with your health and your computer just like so many others, myself included.

I'm glad you are up and around a little bit, but take time to rest up, too, OK? Thanks for your sweet comments and may I say I value your opinion very much. God bless you, Steve. You are a true blessing to all of us and a REAL Servant of our Father God and the Lord Jesus. I am sure they are very pleased with you!

Love you and thanks!
Karen
