If He Laid Heaven Down.

He brought us all we could eat.

Laid it at our feet.

He washed and gathered all the treats.

Yet he could not lay heaven down upon our feet.

That’s for you to discover.

He spoke simply.

We thought we would worship him.

He would lay it at our feet.

Quietly, he shock his head.

Speaking faithfully. On the hearts of everyone,

Heaven lays, you’ll see.

We opened our hearts, well some of us, it’s true.

Some where unwilling, so they leaned on you.

At our feet laid heaven. Doors open wide.

Every breeze and breath and birdsong

held us inside. Waters sparkled off the trees.

Rainbows were all around. All we asked, we had received.

Heaven was found.


Heaven is within all of us. Ask, it will be found.

Love and blessings, đź’• Carrie

The Pines And Stones

Across the expanse of shore

The pines grew. Tall and small. Fragrant.

Swaying, gently in the breeze.

Her toes curled in the cool water.

The smooth stones shone in the early light.

Gleaming like more precious stones

as the water moved over them.

Ebbed and flowed. The waves rolled calmly in.

The soft hum of birds as they woke filled the air.

She was sure that heaven would be like this.

Calm and warm. Soothing. Sensual. Beautiful. Natural.

Smelling of pine trees and ocean breeze.

Radiance

sparkling bright and brilliant

the beams of heaven shone

brilliant gold and radiant

upon the only throne

which sat a saintly being

pointed ears

twitching tail

purring merrily

until the one who usually sat

came upon this being

the one was laughing quite heartily

the cat was lifted in the air

placed gently on the lap

of the one who sat there

Brought Into Heaven

You walked, pranced, beside me.

Climbing the rainbow bridge.

One last goodbye, we spoke.

Before you passed through the gates.

Holy light. Glowing from beyond the golden structures.

So bright it should hurt the eyes.

Soothing in it’s shine.

With love and fullness I turn around.

Walking slowly toward the ground.

You are tucked away with God.

I am here. On earth. Still.

Until the time comes to walk another forward.

The journey is ever evolving.

I am here to play my part.

This Side of Heaven

This side of heaven
The sky is our anchor
The moon and the stars our alignment
The earth our guide

This side of of heaven
The trees whisper guidance
The wind calms our nerves
The grass is our anchor

This side of heaven
Voices are strong
Emotions are guidance
Loves all around

This side of heaven
The heart opens up
The eyes see the magic
The world shines so much

This side of heaven
The fun has begun
The joy in the moment
The breath on the tongue

This side of heaven
Fear does not exist
Quiet moments are pleasure
Laughter is quick

This side of heaven
Although we miss you so much
We see you in the sun, moon, and stars
We hear your laughter
We feel your touch

This side of heaven
Love is enough
