I Saw A Glimpse

As I watched the Opening Ceremony of the Winter Olympics, I was mostly intrigued by the entrance of each nation as they proudly displayed the flag of their Country smiling with pride and waving as they entered the stadium.  You could sense the excitement and joy.  In some instances the President or equivalent stood as their Country's athletes entered and waved back at them with pride.

In my heart I said, look at my brothers and sisters.  These are my brothers and sisters.  I thought about heaven and the parallels of the opening ceremony of the Olympics.  Can you imagine when we enter through the gates....The bible tells us there are 12 gates to the city of Heaven.  Can you imagine how happy and overjoyed we will be, smiling and waving, greeting each other and excited that we made it in? 

I envision how proud our Savior will be smiling back at us and welcoming us in with Pride. I got a glimpse of what Heaven will be like when we make it over.  I look forward to meeting you in person there.

Please enjoy this song, It commands my imagination and attention each time I hear it.

  1. Not sure of it's because I'm already having a emotional morning, but this post and song really got to me. Didn't watch the Olympics opening ceremony, but love how you could see the parallel between that and our entrance through the gates of heaven. I can definitely imagine it now. What a glorious event to look forward to.

    Have a nice weekend.
