Imagine That (FmF)


Imagine what it will be like when we open our eyes and see clearly for the very first time.

When all around are those we love who went before us. There at the table people are laughing and smiling bigger than ever.

And as you stand there with your mouth gaped open you see him. He’s much better than anything you could imagine.

His eyes are deep and when you look into them you get lost because of their depth.

You are drawn to him with a pull like no other you’ve ever known.

And all you can do is stare. Stare at the hands outstretched to you. You see the holes he left there.

And you know he knows you. Just like the times he sat with you when everyone else left.

He puts his hand on your shoulder and you feel a warmth that radiates your whole being.

And he speaks your name. And then you cry.

Because you’ve heard that voice before. It was the voice that tried to comfort you when you lost one loved one after another. The same voice that told you,

“It’s going to be okay.”

And you know what? He was right. You’re with him now. Forever.

Imagine that.

  1. I was imagining something similar when I wrote Anne. It will be amazing, won’t it? Thank you for the reminder of all that is to come that helps us with all that currently is. Bless you. Stopping by from FMF.


  2. Anne, this is beautiful! Just what I needed!
    Believing that “all will be OK” is what takes me from day to day, from one miracle to the next, still within the chaos. So Yes! He is looking behind the clouds, arranging and rearranging those miracles, smililng with our persistence and trust that all will be OK.
    Blessings Anne!
    And Love!


    • Sometimes I feel sad when I think of when God talks about Christians that turn lukewarm. May it never be said about us. There were words to a hymn I remember. “Oh that will be, glory for me, Glory for me, Glory for me. When by His grace I shall look on His face. That will be Glory, Be glory for me.”


  3. Oh I have imagined so many times what it will be like to finally be at home in the presence of the Lord. So beautiful Anne. BTW, I love the new look of your blog, it is “you”!!!!


  4. Kathleen,

    Heaven is one thing we know we can not over-imagine. It will not be something we will exhale disappointed sighs about. We will see Him. We’ll finally see the one who gave his life to spend eternity with us.

    Thanks for checking out my new blog. I do like it a lot. Knowing it is reflecting who I am is great.
