“I wish there was a way to know you’re in the good old days before you’ve actually left them.”
“Communion between God and man is the end to which both creation and redemption are the means; it is the goal to which both theology and preaching must ever point; it is the essence of true religion; it is, indeed, the definition of Christianity.”
“O Christ! He is the fountain, the deep sweet well of love!
The streams on earth I’ve tasted, more deep I’ll drink above!
There to an ocean fullness, His mercy doth expand,
And glory, glory dwelleth, in Emmanuel’s land.”
Anne Ross Cundel Cousin
“Heaven means sharing in the blessedness of God so that in the very depths of our being there is divine contentment, joy, and fulfillment. There is total shalom: a sense of sheer well-being. Every need is met, Every longing is fulfilled. Every goal is achieved. Every sense is satisfied. We see him. We are with him. He holds us and hugs us and whispers, ‘This is forever.’”
