picturing heaven

The kingdom of heaven is at hand. That's something I believe absolutely. I've seen it and felt it, mysterious glimpses through a sort of earthly veil, appearing in nature and art and even the most daily of details. But, above all, in other people. These are the things that keep my faith alive amid loss, the cruelty that some people inflict on others, war, nature's sometime fury, the terrible oil spill. There's certainly plenty of hell at hand, too, and it can be so blatant and overwhelming. Shine a light on it with your life, but don't dwell there. You'll miss the heaven.
