Waiting For Eternity
I’ve a ticking anticipation
Waiting for eternity;
A longing for heaven,
With all of its fresh discoveries.
Yet, waiting births frustration,
Tainting the here and now,
Clouding present joys,
Forgetting current blessings somehow.
Like the blessings of a beating heart,
And the wonders of creation,
Or God’s unending love
And His remarkable salvation.
I’ve still a ticking anticipation.
Dreaming of what will be,
While cherishing moments now given me.
“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ. ”
This is the second time I have used this photo of a Railroad Engineer’s watch, one that originally belonged to my husband’s grandfather. If you would like to see that post, from a couple of years ago, see Tick Tock. It’s a poem about not putting off a readiness for the rapture.
