Look Up (A Heavenly Moment)

“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”

~Ecclesiastes 3:11

Clouds like

Grey cardboard cutouts

Float among

 Puffy cotton-balls

In a cerulean sky.

For a brief

Moment

My spirit

Is allured into

Their ethereal

Peace.

“Take me!”

I plead

Though life is good,

Blessed,

Contentment found

–most days.

Yet I still know

There is something

Better

Somewhere

In a world

I cannot

See.

Spirit talks to spirit

There is work

Yet to be

Done.

But my brief

Desire to go home

Promises me

That I am

His.

 “We live by faith and not by sight. We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.”(2 Corinthians 5:7)

Have you ever experienced a heavenly moment like I did? Where were you?

  1. I have copied and will read next week (good intentions, anyhow) 🙂 Clouds, like trees or the winds or birds or streams, which is where I find God most often, always make me think of “home”
