Poem Commentary

An inexhaustible subject. this thing called Heaven. And compared to things we can piece together to form "doctrine" from, those before us ... the subject of eternity with God still galvanizes us with the picture of wings, white robes and harps. Someone driving around in his Lotus Elan might say ...BOOOOORING! So that picture doesn't do it for him. The one thing Jesus seems to want to reassure us of, is that we will be perpetually contented. As his collective "bride" we'll share our lives with him in perpetual peace of heart and mind. The text says, "...and there shall be no more tears". Ever see the poster of the Laughing Jesus? It rankles collars of some church goers but be prepared because Jesus will be happy enough to laugh(OMG!) when we get together with "our groom and King".

Reflection

                                       REFLECTION

Of praise in song - the son of Morning

Retards the light with notes he's forming

By human gaze there is no profit

Unless our God is not at home

With understanding bound in heaven

Not a note came through unleaven

The great I Am was working off it-

Sweet plans like honey from the comb

The lord of lies seems incidental;

A cavelcade that's purely mental-

An overcast which shrouds the sun

Now time has flown - forever rolls

How shines each heart with God's elation

We're kindred tongues; a single nation

Perfected family - forever souls

Now living in our Father's home

Had you allowed a rating, you could have had a 10, plus the extra points,earned on sliding scale of the eternal 'laid-up-in-heaven' plan. (unending interest does accrue, without time or penalties). A great, heartfelt, refined, exquisite expression of Heavenly Inheritance! Applause Crescendo!!

You mean I'm collecting U.I. and don't even know it????? I haven't been in the house lately here to see who's visited. Marsink! my brother ... Howz it going? Thanks for your gracious words. I'm finding that the code written for poetry posts doesn't like Wordpad. Always some misalignment. I'm sure though that it's the use of the space bar that throws it off.HA... Now that I have Office 2010 there should be no further problems. Have a very HNY by the way..

The great I AM we envision but that is impossible to know, really; but we can envision the host, comprehend love in our lives, know truth come from the source and discern we are creatures. This is well written my friend. Love, peace and freedom, Olan.

so many people could benefit from taking time to read this ... sometimes i think we get swept up in winning , carried away with being in control. that we have forgotten to keep things simple

Yep ... Mind control has got to begin with our own. God has an app for that!

To have great poets there must be great audiences too.
