It Doesn't Get Better Than This

We were in a restaurant with our grandchildren when our two-year-old granddaughter suddenly stood up in the booth, put her chubby little arms around my husband Michael’s neck and shouted for the whole restaurant to hear “You my buddy!”

Michael’s face lit up with a grin that said “It doesn’t get better than this!”

Foretastes of heaven, God is the giver of all things good, heaven
We’ve all had that feeling...
  • When something goes especially well
  • When someone shows their love in a special way
  • When our deepest longings are realized, even if just for a moment
Those moments are foretastes of heaven.

Moments of pure grace or joy.

"Whatever is good and perfect comes to us from God above, who created all heaven’s lights." James 1:17 (NLT)

Imagine what heaven will be like if these are only foretastes!

  1. Thank you, Gail, for the reminder that great joy can be found all around us....and reflects the Greatest Joy we will experience one day... "In Your presence is fullness of joy..." YAY God!

  2. Wouldn't God be happy if we expressed our love in this way?? I desire that nearness that is the implication of "you my buddy" because I know that God truly desire that kind of relationship with me! Love this, Gail!
