Heaven on Earth

Aug 20, 2010 | Faith

Friends are one of the greatest blessings this side of heaven.

This is what I thought the other day as I walked away from time with a friend.
A friend who knows you well, yet encourages you in the Lord.
A friend who knows nothing of competition, jealousies or other girl drama.
A friend who knows the Lord so sweetly that  time with them is like conversing with the Lord.

I wondered as I walked away that heaven must be a small glimpse of what I just experienced.

Complete, unconditional love and acceptance, encouragement, and joy.
Unselfishness and pure motives.

What a blessing the Lord gave me that day, and spurs me to be that to others.

What a difference the Church would look like if all our relationships reflected these qualities.

It would truly be heaven on earth.
