What's On Your Mind '09 - What Is On The Other Side?

Today's challenge at What's On Your Mind, '09 is to post a picture and write about it.

I love outdoor photography and among my favorite subjects are "road" pictures. I love to take a picture of a road suggesting further travel. This particular photo is a favorite of mine because of the trees forming a tunnel over the road. On the other side of this tunnel to the right is a bright open meadow.

When you go through a tunnel, you are passing from one area to another. Some people picture passing from life into death as going through a tunnel. I don't know if that is true, but I think passing from life here to eternity will be a significantly different area than what we are used to viewing.

It's going to be marvelous! As scripture says,

"... Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him" 1 Corinthians 2:9

Passing from death into eternity for the believer should not be scary; we should be anticipating something beautiful! Think of all the beauty that God has created here in seven days. He's been working on heaven since Jesus told the disciples that He was going to prepare a place for us. It's got to be mind-blowing!

I'm excited to see the pictures others posted. Join me in visiting Shane's Heart Reflections.
