No Stop Lights in Heaven



Sometimes the smallest things can inspire a blog. As I was driving down the road yesterday, I hit yet another stop light. As I was sitting at the light, I thought "Well, at least we won't have any stop lights in heaven."

It got me to thinking. Down here, we hurry, hurry, hurry, rush, rush, rush just to come to a complete stop. How many times have you had someone almost run you off the road to pass you up, flying down the road, only to end up one car in front of you ..... at the stop light. 

Why do we feel life has to move in the fast lane? Why can't we just enjoy the moments we have? When we hurry and rush around to get somewhere, we take chances that we miss out on some of the sweet things life has to offer. 

When it all comes to an end and we are walking the streets of glory, we will no longer feel the need to rush through life. Eternity will be sweet peace and joy. Each day will bring blessings upon blessings. We will walk and talk each day with our sweet Jesus. No pain, no anger, no fear, no hurt, no sickness, no sorrow and no stop lights.
