Sweet Celebration

There before me was a great multitude that no one could count,
 from every nation, tribe, people and language,
standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. . .
 And they cried out in a loud voice:
Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne,
and to the Lamb
Revelation 7:9-10

I'm looking forward to the day when our differences will be celebrated . . . .when everyone will enjoy the creativity with which God has created us.  We will look at the beautiful colors and shapes of the people around us and hear the variety of languages and praise, and we will enjoy Him together with no fighting, no hate, no suspicion.  It will be a life full of flavor and joy. 

It will be "a longing fulfilled . . . sweet to the soul."  Proverbs 13:19

Fill up with His sweet Word, and begin the celebration.

Good one.

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! I LOVE this illustration! I will have to use it! It's a brilliant reflection of how we can be so much better together than separate...look how much more beautiful those jellies are together than one lying on a table!

Loved it!

Now how could I not pop over and say amen to this one, considering I have a "jelly belly" family? lol. ;o)

What a meaningful - and still fun - post.

Ozjane said...

I am back to edit my comment.....that i am glad the celebration of differences is beyond my reach. I was referring to the temptation to eat that jar of jelly beans if it was within my reach
Sorry for confusing Aussie sense of humor not explained well.
