Glimpses of Heaven

So, I've been thinking, I'm going to change the name of this blog from "I Breathe, I Write" to "Glimpses of Heaven" - because really, most of the time when I pause to write, it's because something deep within me catches a glimpse and in that moment I know this is what heaven must be like. Yet it's only a glimpse, a passing moment, and it's gone.  And yet in that moment, I've never felt more alive. I believe that is what heaven will be - a constant 'feeling alive', a constant bubble of joy, a smile that never leaves my face. And really, that's why I write, because I want to capture these fleeting moments here on earth. To remember that this life is a journey, and along the journey we get to collect souvenirs we call "moments." And these moments point us towards God and life ever after.  My writings are my humble attempts to capture life's moments into words.

  1. Having had a Near Death Experience, I know exactly how you feel. I see Glimpses of Heaven everyday and try to write them down as well, but unfortunately time is limited and words can be so limiting. You're probably like me and wish you could write more. You call them "moments"... I call them pieces to a Grand Puzzle. And your article is another fortunate piece that I found letting me know I'm not the only one. Thanks!
