I have had such fun today. Before the rains arrived, I walked for two hours, biked for an hour with my sister and then sneaked in another walk with my neighbor. I talked to some friends who were having a garage sale and spoke with a neighbor I hadn’t talked with for several months. I am going to the Starlight Theater with my family to watch my niece in a performance of Mary Poppins. Everything today revolved around relationships, and it was fun.
I thought about the joy and celebration that awaits us in heaven. There will be no hindrances to relationships. We will be free to see Christ in all His glory and the Father in all His fullness. Paul says, “When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory” (Colossians 3:4). The Spirit will wrap us in the eternal essence of love. That calls for dancing and singing and rejoicing.
When we are reunited with God in His eternal kingdom, we will know this unbridled joy. I am looking forward to that glorious day.
“They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away” (Isaiah 35:10). What a glorious day awaits us!
