When Former Disappears...





We didn't know whether to laugh or cry last week after the 18th hole (what a riveting finish those last few holes were); we couldn't help but cheer for both Spieth and Johnson and therefore felt heartbreak and happiness. a picture of life; mourning and celebration juxtaposed...

Then feed today with laughter
And water it with tears
For soon it joins the aftermath
Of Past’s sun-shadow spheres

This slip of skin and dreamer’s dust
Determines so much more
Than momentary wanderlust
Hinged to an Awesome Door

And on the other side of it
Eternal eons roll
And no one is exempt from That
Home waiting for the soul

Then bend the knee with kindness, love
And bow the head in prayer
To God whose mercy blesses us
On earth with heavenly care

…and feed today with laughter, love
Or water it with tears
These are the things that God speaks of
'When Former disappears'

Here, in love, we catch glimpses of heaven and in hatred, glimpses of hell...
God's love has made a way so none need miss Heaven. Have you found it?

Jesus said, I am the way, the Truth and the Life. No man comes to the Father but by Me. John 14:6

 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Rev. 21:4
