How Beautiful Heaven Must Be

That's the title of a great old hymn.  If you were raised up in church, like me, you can hear that tune running through your mind right now.  "How Beautiful Heaven Must Be."  And it's true.  The Biblical descriptions of heaven are amazing.  They are breathtaking.  But sometimes heaven seems so far away, and we forget what we have waiting for us.

I told you that a few weekends ago I went to Las Vegas.  One of the most beautiful places in Las Vegas, to me, is the Bellagio.  And, in particular, the conservatory at the Bellagio.  Really, isn't this just stunning?

Trust me, the pictures don't do it justice.  It is magically beautiful.  Everywhere you look it is just amazing.  Beyond description.

Don't you think that if God gave someone the vision to create the conservatory at the Bellagio, and all of the other beautiful places on Earth, that He has something even BETTER in store for His children?  The Scriptures say in I Corinthians 2:9 "But as it is written, eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him."

John tells us in 14:2:  "In my Father's house are many mansions."  And in Revelation, John describes a heaven that is beyond anything we can even comprehend.  A throne surrounded by a rainbow.  A sea of glass, like crystal. 

So the next time you are feeling overwhelmed by your everyday life, remember what a promise we have waiting for us.  Remember what a reward awaits those who do not grow weary.  A lifetime spent with Jesus.  No more death, no more tears, no more sickness.  He will make everything new.  How Beautiful Heaven Must Be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. What a beautiful post. I have a personal affection for butterflies and your pics are stunning.

  2. I love that old song "How Beautiful Heaven Must Be". We still sing is some Sundays at the little country church that I have attended for 40 years. Another thing that will be Heaven beautiful will be all the family and friends that are waiting for us on the other side. "How Beautiful Heaven Must Be". Enjoy your post.

  3. A great post! We can only imagine what Heaven really looks like, but I know we'll be amazed. The Bellagio is beautiful and I especially loved the fountain show at night. Have a good weekend.

  4. I loved your post and how odd it is that I too was on a vacation and was thinking as I looked at the beauty that surrounded me..."If I'm in awe of this and think this view is gorgeous, I can't imagine what heaven will be like!"
    So happy that you had such a wonderful time with your family. It sounds like a lovely family to have.
    I'm with's definitely time for spring to come. Kansas is being very wishy washy! HA!

  5. What a fabulous post! The photos are amazing and oh how we can't wait to see the beauty in Heaven. This post got me thinking of the new book Heaven is for Real. If you haven't read it, you must put it on your list, it is amazing.

  6. Speaking of heaven, you need to read 90 Minutes in Heaven by Don Piper, it is so good!

  7. Ahhhhh, to be with Jesus - which is far better.... x
