How To Get A Glimpse Of Eden

How to get a glimpse of Eden is really to try an imagine what our Eden home would be like. There is a clip in the video that says “Let your fantasies be founded on truth.” What I mean by this is; for Christians, we believe the words of the bible to be true, so we try to imagine what it would be like to get a glimpse of Eden, and imagine ourselves once again living in that beautiful garden. Of course the bible tells us that we just can’t imagine how beautiful it will be. I would rather think on these things than to think on negative and dark images.

Thinking on beautiful things always uplifts our minds. Who wouldn’t want to live in a beautiful garden, a perfect garden! Who wouldn’t want to be able to touch a rose and to know we wouldn’t be pricked by the thorns! Who wouldn’t want to have the perfect temperature…no complaints of too much heat, no complaints that its too cold.

A glimpse of Eden would be to live in a place with no threats of hurricanes, no threats of earthquakes, no disasters, no massacres, no more threats of global warming. Houses wouldn’t have to be boarded up when hurricanes are in the forecast. No running into the streets for earthquakes. We would gather together regularly without the fear of being shot and massacred. We would walk the Streets of Gold, no chance of a disaster taking place there.

Living in Eden would mean to live in perfect harmony with each other, no more black and white issues, no more police shootings. Everyone there will be like minded. We will uplift each other, we will know the meaning of true love, we will live joyously, walking the streets of gold forever and ever. When we keep reading scriptures, we will get glimpses of Eden, we will get glimpses of our eternal home.

Gray

Today the Daily Post Word was Gray, and it just happened to be a very gray, wet and rainy  day out. In the afternoon the rain subsided and we were able to venture away from the skyscrapers, to see the blooming trees.

Nothing was going to stop us on this day, and even though the skies remained gray, the blooms remained bright.

The water also reflected the gray in the sky.

It’s a very dull rainy day today….BUT, I can finally see the lawn turning green, and my spring flowers poking their heads through my rock garden.

With joy I await the return of butterflies and birds to our area.

This photo was taken in the fall as the Butterflies waited for a wind to take them out over Lake Ontario.
