Atmosphere of Heaven
On the morning of a clear spring day, I eagerly awaited
the appointed time I would again enter His Holy House.
Arriving early by design, I walked the sacred grounds.
Red and yellow tulips plus pink begonias, interspersed
with bouquets of blue lobelia and little purple pansies,
lined the walk-ways invitingly to the wide Temple doors.
Mesmerized by the loveliness of such intricate beauty,
I closed my eyes and inhaled the heavenly fragrance;
musing, if Heaven has a scent, it has got to be the same.
A sweet sense of peace permeated the air and I felt
surrounded by love as I entered into the joy of my Lord.
