I have had such a fun weekend. (I hope you have, too!) Two of my dearest friends, D and G, from my old neighborhood in Georgia came to visit. After ten years of only seeing them occasionally, we got together two weeks ago when HH and I visited Atlanta on a business trip for him (a play trip for me) and now again this soon after here in The Land of Making Do.
You’d think we’d run out of things to talk about after our time together on my trip there. But NO! We will never run out of words! (Our husbands know this, so you might as well know it, too.)
D brought me her home-made strawberry and blackberry jams, so we enjoyed both of those treats on our biscuits. As we sat in my kitchen practically swallowing our tongues, D said she hoped these biscuits would be in heaven if we find we get to eat when we get there. (Thank you, D, for that sweet compliment. Your jams are heavenly, too!))
I’m not saying there’s a slight against heaven (or God) if there’s no food in heaven. But…if there is food (including jam and biscuits), we will eat biscuits to the glory of God! He is the Lord of all, the best Giver of all, and the most generous Blesser of all!
Our topic moved on to Krispy Kreme™ donuts (D has a flashing KK hot light on her Christmas tree each year just like we do). D laughed and told how her family loves to visit Krispy Kreme™ when the hot light is on and longingly watch the “fountain of love” flow over the freshly baked donuts in anticipation of those melt-in-your-mouth delectables traveling down their throats. We joked about how fun it would be to have those donuts with that fountain of love in heaven.
But, wait! There already is a fountain of love in heaven! It’s not a sweet, sticky, silky-smooth layering of white glaze…but the Love of the Lord that will cover every crack and crevice of our heavenly bodies completely and perfectly. The better part is that we don’t have to wait for it in anticipation like standing at Krispy Kreme’s clear window for viewing.
The fountain of love from God can fill us while we’re here on earth even better than the (white glaze) fountain of love from Krispy Kreme™. He continually calls us to come to Him to be filled with the sweet goodness of His complete and perfect love.
We don’t have to die to get it…He died for us to get it! God’s fountain of love will fill us forever…and we never have to be tempted by a Krispy Kreme™ fountain of love again (except for a fun family time of stomach-filling). When the Lord satisfies our souls, there’s no true need for anything else.
I hope these thoughts of heaven and God’s perfect love (and a little earthly pleasure from Krispy Kreme™) fills your heart with joy on this spectacular Sunday.
