Just Beyond the Veil


Be encouraged dear pilgrim.
Our loved ones are
just beyond the veil,

surrounded by the cloud
of witnesses

who have gone before us.
They’re singing
the Song of our Redeemer,
and they’re waiting to welcome us home. 

And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying,
‘Come up here’. Then they went up to heaven
in a cloud and their enemies watched them. Rev. 11:12 

A Rose Blooms in Heaven

Aug. 1  MistyRose1

They say roses don’t bloom in winter, But I know one who does.
The one who’s gone before you,
Blooms in heaven above.

God says there are no tears in heaven. They’ve all been wiped away. For the One who’s gone before us, has given a brand new day.

They say there is much joy in heaven,

For loved ones who are there;
Wait joyfully for the day all see,
Dear loved ones—oh so fair.

And on that day, we too will sing
With angels from above;
As we worship our Redeemer,
The object of our love.

Reflections from: John 14: 1-3, Rev. 21:1-5
