 Language of Enchantment


~^~The Heavenly Tug ~^~

Heaven is like a kid flying a kite
When his daddy comes up to check...
Dad tells the kid he can' see the kite...
Looking up and straining his neck.

Son tells his dad the kite is still soaring,
 Sandwiched in a cloud covered hug.
He says, "Daddy, I can't see it either,
But it's there because I feel its tug."

Like the kid, the soul should be feeling
The tug of God's Heaven and heart...
The longing to be with the Master
And the joy this thought should impart.

Poets and poetry could never describe
The pleasures the Lord holds in store
Or the resplendent beauty of Heaven
To be found on its breath-taking shore.

Consider the colorful paints used on earth
When He brushes each butterfly wing
Or the radiance reached by a single rainbow
After the rain's had it's fling

Yet colors used here are so dull compared
To the glory before mankind's fall.
But, then, I know Heaven is still meant to be
The most magnificent place of them all.

Just consider the absence of evil
And the presence of everything good!
This, in itself, would be Heaven on earth.
This, clearly, can be understood.

But, then, why believe in a Heaven
That so many believe is absurd?
I, if for no other reason, than this,
Believe it because it's God's Word.

Our blessed Lord spoke of Heaven...
Of rooms He, Himself, would prepare.
I sincerely believe Heaven's ready
To welcome each one of us there.

Simply call it a Heavenly instinct...
Now, don't you just give it a shrug.
Don't you feel something is stirring?
Don't you experience that Heavenly tug??

Lovingly Presented,

But as it is written:

"Eye has not seen, nor ear
Nor have entered into the
heart of man
The things which God has
prepared for those who love
I Corinthians 2:9

"Let not your heart be troubled:
ye believe in God, believe also
in Me. In my Father's house are
many mansions: if it were not so,
I would have told you. I go to
prepare a place for you. I will
come again, and receive you unto
myself, that where I am, there
ye may be also."
John 14:1-3
