Heaven is right now

I walked out of my house the other day and by the time I got to my driveway a breath of the spring air arrested me and my I was planted, looking at the pink and blue, rolling sky above me. If my neighbors were watching, I assume they looked twice.

Sometimes I think we’re already in heaven, we’re just still holding onto bits of fallen earth.

I know some moments are pretty hard, and things that don’t seem like they would happen in heaven hit us. But I think so many of the other moments are simply heaven. People. Nature. The sky. The sky. We’re just holding on to the bad ones so much that we can’t see it.

  1. I love seeing what God paints in the sky. God definitely gives us glimpses of what heaven is like, but I also think it’s greater then I can think or imagine.😊 sounds like it was a beautiful sunrise, or sunset, did u take a photo of it?

      Ha no! I didn’t get to take a picture of it! I think I assumed a camera just wouldn’t be able to do it justice. :) oh and to comment on the heavven is better than we imagine comment, i bet you’re right! Then, if I have a really “healthy poverty” (Annie dillard’s term) heaven will impress us so much more :) thanks for the comments Ashley! You’re rad.
