Thoughts of Heaven

Thoughts of Heaven

I’m weak, unaware and in need.
We’re all from dust and shall return.
Will life bring forth garbage and weeds,
Or will I be growing and learn?

I remind myself - I will die.
There’s reality in weakness.
Jesus shines on me “from the sky”
In all his power and meekness.

I love my Lord while I’m on earth.
He loved me before I was born.
When I believed He gave rebirth.
Now thoughts of Heaven aren’t forlorn.

Song says, “What a day that will be!”
I’m looking forward to it now.
Then my soul will be truly free!
In His holy presence, I’ll bow.  


In case you forgot -  Meekness is strength under control.
