The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,

The sun forbear to shine;

But God, who called me here below,

Will be forever mine.

Amazing Grace, by John Newton verse 6

As I walk with my husband during his last days on earth, I am reminded of those marriage vows “Till death do us part.”  We do not have much detail on what heaven will look like in the Bible.  We do know that when we enter eternity, relationships will be forever and not torn apart by death, disease and divorce like our lives here on earth.   I like to think that we will have meaningful, productive lives as in the Garden of Eden and as suggested by Revelation 21 that talks of the “new Jerusalem” and a river and the tree of life.  I love C.S. Lewis and his last book “The Last Battle” in “Chronicles of Narnia.”  I tell my husband to find us a house near Mr. and Mrs. Beaver with a blue bedroom but the truth is that we just don’t know.  We trust, we believe and we do know we will be with God and God is good.  Psalm 136 speaks to the eternalness of God’s love.  Eternity will be characterized by love.

O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever.
O give thanks to the God of gods,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever.
O give thanks to the Lord of lords,
    for his steadfast love endures for ever;

Psalm 136:1-3

         Today let’s focus our hearts on God’s eternal love that endures and does not end with death or arguments or distance.  Let’s thank him for his love that has no measure.  I do not have words and must turn to music.  Listen with receptive hearts to the truth expressed here.
