Simply Sunday - Emily Dickinson on Love



Source: Unknown



Who has not found the heaven below
Will fail of it above.
God's residence is next to mine,
His furniture is love.

~ Emily Dickinson


Pondering this...
If I imagine God's love is like furniture in his heavenly realm,
then every time I sit or lay down,
I can sink into His perfect love for me.
I feel the comfort ... the cozy ... the protection ... the bliss!

Sending peaceful thoughts,
Brenda

  2. What a wonderful thought! I do like Emily Dickinson. I guess heaven will be furnished with love, won't it? And the room looks love-ly, it it yours?

    - a cozy image that draws me in to snuggle with Him.

  5. Enjoyed your comments, Lovely Readers!

    Ginny, you asked if that room was mine.... no, in fact, it is not.
    Found this graphic at glittergraphics.com. But, I agree, it looks like a great place to cozy up in!
