Day 98: The Throne of Heaven

Passage: Revelation 4-7

Picture the most beautiful panorama you can.
Savour a thirst-quenching drink.
Smell a fragrant aroma that infuses and lingers.
Listen in stereo to a harmony of sound.
Feel the touch of an all-consuming embrace.

I am reminded of what C.S. Lewis wrote at the end of the adventures in Narnia, after all the battles were fought:

“But for them it was only the beginning of the real story.  All their life in this world and all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on for ever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.”

For us too the story is only beginning…
