Now I've heard that song sung before, and while it has always made me think about what heaven will be like, I really was moved by the words and the music as I watched all those sweet children communicate without words.
Caed, my oldest grandson, had his back to me. His little skinny legs with the white socks, one higher than the other, were sticking out of his oversized carge shorts. He looked so sweet and vulnerable standing there making big arm circles over his head for the word 'imagine'. I got all choked up thinking that I might not be spending forever with him in heaven. I know I'll be going there when I die, but I don't know his heart. Will he embrace the faith so carefully passed down or will he go his own way; the way that leads to spiritual death?
All I know is that I need to pray so much more for all my family and live the kind of life that causes them to ask me about the joy that lives in me; and invite them to share in God's forever which begins right now on this earth.
