because the beauty draws you.


You don’t want it to end,


that sunrise with colors unearthly

that thunderstorm dramatic and powerful

that voice of a child so angelic

that happiness with contentment deep roots

that peaceful moment so serene and filling

that rainbow with colors that can’t possibly be real

that music that stirs and pulls you in

that holding of a new life, small and precious

that embrace of genuine love…


You stare hard and fast,

you grasp with hands slipping,

for you know you will not be able to keep it.


You listen with concentrated brow

for you know it will drift off.


You soak up what you can

for you know it’s just a glimpse.


Of what?

You may not know.


But the beauty pierces you

and the power awakens you

and the depth is undeniable.


Glimpses of heaven

your home.


You’ve never been there,

but you long for it.


Everyone does,

whether they know it or not.


Your heart tells you

that what makes your heart leap

and takes your breath away

and stirs the deepest parts

is just a glimpse

of home.




run after for goodness sakes,

the God who put eternity in your heart.


He has made your home ready.

– Susie Stewart


My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with Me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.

– John 14:2-4 (NIV)


He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

– Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NIV)


But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ.

– Philippians 3:20 (NIV)
