  1. I join you in my desire to see heaven this morning! I feel like I am tasting it in my life right now! God is so amazing!!! Thank you so much for sharing your incredible words this morning. You really know how to make a full word picture! You brought tears of joy to my eyes as I read your message.

  2. That was just beautiful. I don’t even have any other words except just beautiful. Thank you Deidra. You have blessed my Sunday morning! 🙂

  3. I find myself yearning for heaven more and more these days, but also for just a glimpse of it in this earthly frame. I know there is so much more too Deidra, if only I can learn to embrace it.
    This was just exquisite.

  4. He has set eternity into my heart, too… Oh, to be free from “down to earth”! To be able to soar in reality instead of having to come “back to” reality… these romantic notions and day dreams are heaven in our hearts, aren’t they… When I look up at a star-lit sky, I sometimes imagine it’s a black canvas between us and heaven with little pinholes poked into it so heaven’s light can shine through… Oh, to see His face! Someday!

  5. “Just a few more weary days and then
    I’ll fly away
    To a land where joy shall never end
    I’ll fly away…..”
    You are not the only one! I cannot wait to see his face!
    God bless,

  6. Deidra, girl, you and your words make me ache for heaven every time I read them. They make a little bit of there come here, right into our everyday lives. When I look into your heart I catch a glimpse of His too. Thanks so much for the reminder of Home.

  7. I long for heaven…the little I know if it. I know it will be more joy filled and glorious than we can even imagine. My girls just lost their grandpa (my dad) last month and they are so jealous that grandpa is with Jesus!
    What a glorious day of rejoicing it will be to finally be home….
    Much love!

  8. Deidra,
    Your poem has explained something big for me…that this undefined yearning I feel sometimes deep in my heart is perhaps for heaven, beyond and so much more what’s glimpsed on earth. Thank you!

  9. Very good post. Made me realize I was totally wrong about this issue. I figure that one
    learns something new everyday. Mrs Right learned her lesson! Nice, informative website by the way.
