There is something about it that stirs my soul. I sit on my back porch and watch as the sky becomes a tapestry of ever-changing colors. Blue, white, yellow, gold, red, orange, pink, and purple all weave together to create something so beautiful and so glorious that itis transcendent. When you look at it for a brief instant it is like you are getting a glimpse of Heaven. It isn’t just sunsets, though, that can give you a glimpse of Heaven. With a loving heart and a grateful spirit, you can see that they are everywhere. They are in a baby's laugh, a litle gin’s smile, the wag of a dog’s tail, and the loud purr of a contented cat. They are in an uplifting song, and a beautiful painting. They are in the first flower of Spring, ccol breezes on a Summer day, the colors of the Fall leaves, and the first snow of Winter. They are in a heartfelt hug, a gentle touch, a caring kiss, and an encouraging word. They are in every loving thought, every prayer from the soul, every simple act of kindness, every single act of charity, and every joyful “Thank You" you give to God. ‘Anything that brings us closer to love gives us a glimpse of Heaven. Any act that helps another soul gives us a glimpse of Heaven. Any thought that makes us more one with God gives us a glimpse cf Heaven. In fact, our highest calling in ths life isto bring as much Heaven as we can down here to Earth. When our hearts are full of Heaven, then Heaven will be our home in this life and in the next. May you fill all of your cays here with Love and joy. May your heart always be full of thanksgiving. May you find Heaven everywhere you look and bring Heaven everywhere = Joseph J.
