Heaven On Earth


"Earth is crammed with Heaven."
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
 
 Heaven is everywhere. If a person fails to see the evidence of Heaven on earth, it is a choice they've made. Fortunately, we are free to make such choices; I would not have it any other way. I don't want to miss anything, and having 'heaven sight' adds a new dimension to appreciating the wonders of Creation. We don't abandon science, for it is part of the whole and adds specifics to understanding. Heaven sight ventures beyond academics and returns to us childlike wonderment and being better able to appreciate every dimension of Nature. The word "awesome" takes on true breadth. I'm so grateful for having my eyes and mind opened to the magnificence of every painted autumn leaf. Heaven on earth surrounds us entirely.

Hi Sherry,
Thanks for stoping by my site. Yes I agree old things have a past life and seem more at home then the new.
Been re-reading my old Gladys Taber books. She reminds us in her writng to see the world around us, and not hurry through. Did you ever read her books?

Shery, after visiting your blog just now I feel honored that you like mine. :) Your blog pictures and verses are beautiful. You and your hubby are living my husband's dream life. We have land in Texas but don't get to live there. He would love to be living the ranch life. I will definitely be back to see you!
