Written in memory of
Glenda Kay Brown Knox
I don't feel complete without my watch. I wear it every day and constantly check the time. Now, this doesn't mean I'm EVER on time. I'm not. I simply like to know the time since I usually have something else to do (or I'm bored), but when I'm doing what I love, I don't look at my watch and lose track of time.
If I walk on a track or a treadmill, which is never, I
constantly look at my watch hoping time will speed up; however, when I walk in the woods or hike in the
mountains where there's rocks, waterfalls, trees, and a worn path, I lose track of time. When reading fiction, I neither know nor care
about time. Several hours pass, and I
lose track of time and forgot about problems.

Life is so stressful, isn't it? There's so much to do and think about. Worry and strife never ends, does it? Because we're human. We make mistakes and live with consequences from our actions and the actions of others. I can complain, yet worry, stress, and strife continue. Again, it's life.

If my mom were alive she would be celebrating her 74th birthday!! She was a tough chick but loved and appreciated by so many! Oh how I'd love for God to let me spend an afternoon with her again...to fill her in on our lives since 1997....however, I know there is nothing happening here that is more glorious than heaven! — feeling peace
I have no idea what heaven is like, but If I had to guess, I'd say Glenda isn't looking at her watch. She's worshipping God and doesn't want to stop.
No longer will there be a curse upon anything. For the throne of God and of the Lamb will be there, and his servants will worship him. Revelation 22:3 NLT
Some versions state servants will serve him. Heaven is not of this earth, so we can't fully comprehend what this worship or service looks like, but we won't have any desire to stop. I believe, and this is strictly opinion, we'll lose track of time. We'll worship God continually, and this will be our only desire.
Other than God and other believers, including people I love and miss, I don't know what's in heaven. I only know what's not: headaches, back aches, or surgeries. There are no insecurities, mean spirited words, or jealousies. There are no heart attacks, cancer or Alzheimer's patients, hospitals or nursing homes. There is no abuse or deception. There are no traumas, addictions, mental illnesses, or broken hearts. There are no murderers, victims, money problems, poverty, or hunger.
He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be
no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.
Revelation 21:4 NLT
|Glenda & Stuart|
Will we lose all track of time in heaven? Maybe. Maybe not. It's more than I intend to study. But, can you imagine a life where your feelings are never hurt? There's room for you and me, and strife will be over. Pain will be gone. Tears will be dry. Our time will be spent with God.

I don't think I'll need my watch,
