Hymn Scripture Challenge with Patter Cross - #10 - When We All Get to Heaven

As you can see it has been many months since this challenge has taken place. The host of the challenge - Patter Cross has moved homes and had a lot to do with the moving and settling in so she has only this week been able to re-start the challenge.
I have missed it and now will start once again looking forward each fortnight to see what Hymn, Patter has chosen for us to work with.

This fortnight it is a lovely old lively hymn - When We All Get to Heaven
I decided to work with the word "heaven" for my choice of scripture to use on the double sided piece that I display on an ATC stand.
It is wonderful to realise we  can truly wait eagerly to get to heaven or to see Jesus when He returns to gather us if we are still living when He returns.

Here are some words by Billy Graham:

The Bible indicates that heaven will be a place of great understanding and knowledge of things that we never learned down here. Sir Isaac Newton, when an old man, said to one who praised his wisdom, "I am as a child on the seashore picking up a pebble here and a shell there, but the great ocean of truth still lies before me."     And Thomas Edison once said, " I do not know one millionth part of one percent about anything". Many of the mysteries of God - the heartaches, trials, disappointments, tragedies, and the silence of God in the midst of suffering - will be revealed there.

Prayer: All the questions will be answered loving Father, when I take my place in heaven to praise you.
