>It’s another beautiful day in this neighborhood. The temperatures and humidity are much lower than last week.
When I take Libby out early in the morning and see the cottonwood leaves, shimmering translucently in the morning sun, I marvel to think they will be even more beautiful in the new earth. This sun is only temporary; it will pass away and we will finally see the light of which it is only a wavering reflection.
Revelation 21:22-25 (ESV) describe the light of the New Jerusalem:
“And I saw no temple in the city, for its temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb. And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb. By its light will the nations walk, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it, and its gates will never be shut by day—and there will be no night there.”
Like Job, my hearts yearns within me (19:27)!
