Glimpses of Heaven

Revelation 19:7  Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.

Last weekend I had the privilege of taking pictures of the first view at my niece’s wedding. The looks on their faces says it all. They were so happy and so in love! After two years of planning their big day to publicly declare their love to each other had finally come.

Despite everything happening in the world, the weekend was one of those rare weekends when everything feels right. My children, parents, sisters, cousins, nieces and nephews all attended the wedding. My daughter read the scripture and my husband gave the blessing before the meal. As I sat back and soaked in the evening of vows, laughter, food and dancing. I thought, this must be what heaven will be like….   living in peaceful community, surrounded by those we love.

I look forward to the first view in heaven. When my weary feet and glad heart see Jesus’ face. Oh, what a day that will be!
