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.
I too am waiting in anticipation!!
Lovely poem Sue! 🙂
Thanks, Rolain. Have a blessed day.
Hi Jane. You are welcome
What a lovely and beautiful poem about eternity. just crossed on my mind one day I will write something based on your poem. Many blessings to you,sis: )
Thank you, Sis
Beautiful, Sue. Find myself eagerly longing more and more. “Maranatha that is, Lord, come!” (1 Corinthians 16:22b, HCSB)
Loved this line: “Like the blessings of a beating heart”… mmmmh!
The posture of grateful worship. Hope you’ve been well. Long time 🙂
Thanks so much!
This is so good–some days I just crave to go Home so much!
Yes! To our real home! Thank you
Beautiful words as usual Sue and precious heirloom as well. If that watch could talk, I wonder what stories it could tell… 🙂
Yes. Agree about the watch. It brings back memories for Jim and his family.
Sue, I love all things old, but I look forward to shedding this tent of achy bones. Wonderful poem of the hope we have in Him. The watch is charming.
