CHRISTIAN POEMS AND DEVOTIONALS FOR THE SEARCHING AND WEARY
PICTURE HEAVEN POEM AT HEAVEN GATE, REJOICE IN LORD JESUS

H E A V E N  -  This September night I thought – most Christians do not have a picture of Heaven. Ask them to describe Heaven and they are vague. As important as this destination is to a Christian, we ought to be able to describe it. So I sat down at the cmputer with the following results. Here are my thoughts in a Heaven poem.  Frank Henrich September 17, 1986    

       Heaven Poem - Heaven Gate  

Can you hear the bells ringing?
  Is your heart singing with joy?
Are you surrounded by beauty,  
  So breathtaking?  

Is peace so invading your being,
  That every passing moment
Is so wonderful and grand,
  That all anxiety has evaporated?  

Can this be Heaven?
  Could I daydream of your delights?
Hoping with a new insight
  To fathom some of your splendors?  

Must I feel sad
  When thinking of Heaven?
No! No! never,
  I must not be afraid.  

The colors are so peaceful,
  So vibrant and fluorescent,
Yet, with a flowing softness
  Of interweaving hues.  

Oh! My eyes dazzle at their splendor,
  No color on Earth reaches their greatness,
Even a flower garden in full bloom
  Is an inferior imitation.  

Is this where my faith
  Will lead me?
Does my hope focus on reaching
  These Heavenly shores?  

Oh! Yes, but even more,
  For all their beauty,
For all their peace and joy
  My soul does desire.

Yet, this beauty is for serving,
  Not to be served,
For in its midst is a greater glory,
  For my God dwells here.  

So my hope is not for the bells,
  Not even for the colors and peace,
But there I will be with my God
  In all His serenity.  

But it is hard for me
  To picture in my mind,
The glory of His presence,
  Though earnestly, I seek.  

I believe Jesus allows us 
  To see a bit of our Heaven,
While still here on Earth,
  To encourage us along.  

You say, “You have not seen,
  Not even just a bit.”
Have you asked Jesus to show you?
  Why don’t you ask?  

For I believe that God will share
  And when He does,
What a delight!
  A real hope booster.  

But most importantly,
  It serves to rekindle our hope,
When life’s purposes seems lost,
  Our view of Heaven, gives us hope.        

Scriptures: John 14:1-3, 2 Corinthians 5:1, Matt 6:19-21   >

The life of Saint Peter is one to study about Christian death. For we must prepare for our Christian death so Saint Peter provides us a good example.

Christians Are Not Sad Sacks !

By Frank Henrich August 19, 2010

HEAVENS GATE

        Oh! if I could fly a kite,
          If I could spoon a goldfish
        From a big school of fish,
          Oh! if I could fly away
        Into a land of airy dreams,
          Could that make me happy?

        Oh! happy foolish me!

        Oh! if I could catch a fish,
         
Row a boat across a lake,
        Roller skate a waltz at a rink
          Kick a can into a yard
        Dye my hair carrot orange
          Could that make me happy?

        Oh! happy foolish me!

        Should I have a drawn long face?
          Should my shoulders droop?
        After all I'm a Christian
          And I have an important
        Mission to save the lost,
          Did God say be a sad sack?

        Be happy, you wise you!

Can you picture Heaven, the key to Heaven?  Can we be knocking on Heaven's door? Let us examine Saint Peter and his Christian death.
