Sometimes I think about what Heaven will be like and it is so hard to fathom the joy that we will feel.  Joy is such a fleeting emotion here on this Earth.  You can be happy or content but joy is so much more than that.

God gives us fleeting glimpses of it. Like when you fall in love.  But even if you are happy the joy is fleeting because the World intrudes.  You begin to wonder, have doubts and concerns.  Even if you have faith in your loved one - human nature is in us all. 

Then there is true joy when you are gifted with a child.  The beauty, the innocence of a baby brings joy.  But then that old world intrudes again.  Will I be a good parent?  Am I up to the monumental task of raising a human being. 

I could go on and on about the moments that bring you joy on this Earth, but how much more will that joy be intensified when we go to Heaven to be with our King?  It's hard for me to fathom.

Just thinking...
