Two weeks ago after snapping a hundred plus pictures to capture the vibrancy and love of life oozing out of Mexico High School’s prom goers. Yes it was raining, but it hadn’t drained anyone at this photo-shoot from enjoying their prom night. My daughter and I climbed into the van with water dripping from us and smiles consuming our faces. We had a choice ~ go home or go grocery shopping? Easily decided…we went shopping!
After walking out of the last store we were greeted by the most beautiful sunset. All the rain had created a breath taking view right before our eyes. My daughter noticed it first and made sure I stopped to take it in. As we both stood in the middle of the parking lot gaping at this amazing sight we forgot about the cars, people, and the groceries. The next question brought tears to my eyes…”Mom, what do you think heaven looks like? The Bible says it is prettier and better than anything we have ever seen or will see on earth but this is BEAUTIFUL. You can almost feel the clouds…” and the conversation continued.
From a joyous prom photo-op to the mundane grocery shopping and the climax of the evening – not the beautiful sunset, nor the fluffy clouds I could almost feel when I closed my eyes but instead…the climax is the comfort and joy to know my daughter reads her Bible, thinks about the Scriptures and anticipates the day she will wiggle her toes in a cloud while sitting next to Jesus and feel the cloud between her fingers.
Have a great weekend everyone! When you travel to the beach this summer...wiggle your toes in the sand and feel it between your fingers. This is only a teaser for something better yet to come...eternity in heaven! :)
Ecclesiastes 3:10-12 NIV “I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race. He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live.”
