Crunch of ice; foggy breath;
dreary sky; grass of death.

As I walk across the yard it's hard to imagine that a few months from now the grass, plants and trees will be overgrown. The air will be thick with heat and humidity. Flowers will be in full bloom, dotting the landscape with bold and bright colors.The same world; a different world.

Winter. Summer.

Mourning cry; meal of tears;
clenching gut; house of mirrors.

As I walk through life from day to day, it's hard to imagine that the absence of breath is eternity. For those in Christ, there will be no tears. No sadness. No death, pain or sorrow. All will be Christ. Light. Life. Beauty. The same world; a different world. A better world. A new world.

Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”

And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”  (Revelation 21:1-8)
