I'll Have Forever To See It All

When I walk thru pearly gates into Heaven, And the beauty of that city, I behold, All my loved ones will be smiling as they greet me, As I walk down the streets of pure gold. Old aquaintances and friends, I'll remember, Come to see me or just say,"hello." But the greatest attraction in Glory, Is when Jesus comes and welcomes me home. As He shows me my mansion on a hilltop, Where the River of Life flows below, No need to hurry for time is eternal. I'll have forever to see it all. Maybe, I'll just stroll across Heaven. Maybe, I'll talk with my friends, all day long. Maybe, I'll spend all my time with Jesus. I'll have forever to see it all. Many times down here we're faced with pain and heartaches, And it seems those troubled times goes on and on. Yet, we're told in His word these things will happen, But He won't leave us to face them all alone. Oh, what joy just to know that God is with us. What a blessing to know He cares for His own. As we struggle toward the end of our pathway, We won't worry for the sins that we've known. All of heaven will be smiling as we cross-over, There'll be no tears for us to shed anymore. Only joy up ahead for us is waiting. We'll have forever to see it all. Maybe, I'll spend all my time praising Jesus. Maybe, I'll sit at His throne all day long. No need to hurry for time is eternal. I'll have forever to see it all.

    Thanks, Avis, for your kind comment. It's wonderful that we will have forever to enjoy what Christ is preparing for us in heaven. We'll enter one of the 12 gates according to our character. Not the Astrogolical stars that Satan devised to con man. Great poem, Avis, I really enjoyed it! God bless, Maureen
