I wonder


Have you ever looked up at the night sky and just wondered?



Tonight I wondered just how far away Heaven must be.

I do! I don't think Heaven is as far away as it seems. I love you!

Jennifer said...

Its right around the corner.. I don't think God would put it very far away.. :)

With God, anything is possible and all is just the right way, distance, etc. Remember though, we'll be there in the blink of an eye!

Some days it seems too far away, others it seems just around the corner. (((HUGS))) - Deedee

(((HUGS, Marsha)))) Is that a picture from last night with Jupiter near the moon? We had cloud cover last night, and I couldn't see it.

HIS daughter said...

I love that picture! It was my view last night as well! :) God is good! :) I can hardly wait to go to heaven!

Latte said...

Isn't there a scripture that says heaven is on earth...we just can't see it? Well I am pretty sure that is not what you meant...I will just blame this post on being tired.

Dad said...

In earthly terms, heaven is very, very far away. In God's terms (which is the way I will get there) it is only the blink of an eye away!!
If you are lost without Christ, it is an eternity away!!

Yes...as I age heaven becomes more real and closer somehow.

Beautiful picture.

SuperAngel said...

Absolutely! Everytime I look at the sky, night or day, I think about heaven and the awesomeness of it all and one day being there.

praying for you! HUGS!

I have been following your blog a while now, and my heart has ached for you over and over, but I never knew what to say if I left a comment... well, last night, we saw the exact same view of the moon and that star from our balcony, except we had a cloud that passed over it while we watched. (We are in NM) My daughter and I looked up and we literally wondered exactly the same thing.... their father died of cancer last year and I know it's not the same pain as losing your tiny one, but it does make you look at the sky in a whole new way...

Emily said...

Whenever I start to wonder and look at the stars it makes me panic because it all seems so HUGE and big and freaky. But thanks be to God that he gives me peace that passes any man's understanding....that I can have peace while looking at the expanse is really astonishing.

Lovely picture...is there symbolism in it?

And I look up and wonder when He'll get here. Now would be a good time.

Alison said...

I wonder how far away it is and I hope and pray it won't be long before we get to find out!

Marsha....
I accidentally stubbled across your blog about a year ago via a link from another blog. I wanted to let you know that your faith is such an inspiration. Your words are beautiful and brave. Your ability to see the positive and focus on the bigger picture is amazing. And you inspire me to be a better mother and a stronger follower of Christ. Your boys are blessed to have you as a role model in their lives. And you have blessed the life of this total stranger. Thank you.

I don't think of it in terms of distance, but how much longer? When we as Christians complete our God given assignments and fulfill our callings, that is when the wait will be over. I thank you Lord that I hear your voice, use me I am Yours.
