Green Grass

In 2004 I lived in Europe for five months. While I lived there, I visited a town called Tazae. I stayed in that town for one week.
While I was in Tazae, I decided to use my time to think about God. So I stayed away from people that week. I took many walks around the city. I looked at many beautiful places.
One day I sat down near an open field and read Psalm 84. The grass in the field was the greenest grass I had ever seen. As I looked at the beautiful grass, I read this psalm. The writer of this psalm talked about the temple where the people worshiped God. It must have been a beautiful place, too.
Then I thought about heaven and that it will be even more beautiful than the temple or a field of green grass. The Bible tells us in the book of Revelation that it will be a wonderful place. I can’t wait to get there!
I hope that you will think about heaven today. Be excited to spend forever with God.
