A Glimpse of Heaven

There are those occasional moments in life that give us a glimpse of the sort of place Heaven will be. Peace and joy walking hand in hand with God.

I had one of those moments several weeks ago when our family went for a walk along the Minnesota River. My 6-year-old daughter, Elly, held my hand almost the entire walk (2+ miles). We talked and told jokes and explored and listened and smiled and dreamed together. For me it was one of those cherished moments.

I downloaded the pictures from that walk finally yesterday… and found that Kathy had captured this special moment. Thought I'd share it with you…




  1. Kids have a way of really clarifying some of those things. I remember one specific time when one of my boys woke up early so I went in and sat with them in the early morning. He fell back asleep and then I watched him as he woke up again. The first thing he did was smile and me and touch my face. Instantly I knew that God was teaching me something about the relationship I have with Him. It was like He was saying, “this is what I want from you” Anyway— awesome stuff.

  2. Thank you for the reminder of walking with God. Your photo puts on a smile on my face as a glimpse into how Lucy is doing the same with good in Heaven.
