"Beauty Of The Cross"
Through tears and sorrow, I came to this realization that when I get to heaven it's not going to be all about seeing Nate. That's not going to be the greatest joy, yes, I'm sure seeing him again will be wonderful. But that's not really the point. We were created to love God. Once you've come to have a saving knowledge of Jesus, while I don't fully grasp what heaven will be like, I do know through reading the Bible, that it's about worshiping Him. There have been times in my life that I looked at that and thought it could be incredibly boring, bowing down and singing for eternity, no longer being married...will we care about having cute hair and clothes? I'm not a sports gal, but I know I've heard Phil talk about hockey....
The point I'm trying to make is this, while we may do other things besides worship our Creator, the great thing about heaven is that we GET to. That is what we were created to do. Sometimes it is super hard to grasp. But while singing this song it reminded me how much Jesus loves us and what heaven is all about. We will be overjoyed to see loved ones, but that will not be the main, great thing.
My mom taught Ella this song, I can only pray that she will continue to grow to love Jesus and fully understand his love for her.
