God’s gift to you!

The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.The gift of heaven is a gift anticipated with trembling, but received with peace. Matthew 13:44

It is a gift painful to contemplate, but then radically, wonderfully heals.

It is a gift dreaded by the foolish, but longed for by the wise.

It is a gift often seen as punishment, yet brings the most precious of blessings.

It is a gift often hidden from children, but they, most of all, need to know its blessings.

It is a gift to be put off till tomorrow or the next day, but will come when the good Shepherd calls.

It is a gift that reveals our weakness, but brings the radiant energy of Christ.

It is a gift obscured by temporal illusions, but then explodes with the brilliance of eternity.

It is a gift to be longed for, if only we believe.
