“Many are the wonders of the heavens in tribute to the glory of the kingdom,
in defying the imagining of the saints,
in surpassing beauty of the dream of dreams.
The wonders of the heavens are bejewelled and encrusted:
so to sparkle and to scintillate in readiness for the eyes of the saints,
in readiness for the footprints of the saints,
in readiness for the handprints of the saints,
in readiness for the exclaiming of the saints,
in readiness as keepsakes for the saints,
in readiness as mementoes of the travels based on exploration by the saints.
The wonders of the heavens pattern the landscapes of God,
pattern the vistas set by God,
pattern the sea and the sky in conformity with the intent of God,
pattern the cosmic creations placed within the firmament of God.
The wonders of the heavens are not as a daylily on the Earth,
are not designed to wilt and pass away,
are not set upon a timetable where perfection does not last,
are not subject to a tenure where ageing speaks of birth,
The wonders of the heavens are not subject to the cycling of life within mortality as seen upon the Earth.
The wonders of the heavens are approachable and at peace,
have no intent to harm,
have no intent to make their mark before the throne of God,
have no intent to impose themselves upon the space of others.
The wonders of the heavens are named and known to God and all within His family.
The wonders of the heavens include Earth as a member of belonging,
as a member of security,
as a member where grace is both known and lives.
The wonders of the heavens circle and gravitate as decreed by God,
formulate and construct as decreed by God,
finish and polish to perfect as decreed by God.
The wonders of the heavens are not crowded for display space,
have their own uniqueness of presentation,
have their own eye-catching ability to commandeer the eyes of the saints of God.
The wonders of the heavens have sounds aplenty across the full spectrum of listening.
The wonders of the heavens know the hop the skip the step the jump at the start of commissioning a journey.
The wonders of the heavens see the saints venture forth in eagerness;
return with tales to tell;
return with images in mind so difficult to describe;
return in satisfaction of the seen,
return in amazement at the initial investigation of the majesty surrounding the dwelling place of God.
The wonders of the heavens are not laid as a quilt upon a bed,
are not laid as a lawn upon the Earth,
are not laid as a mat upon the floor.
The wonders of the heavens hold the dimensions as intended by design,
have content only partly familiar to man,
display the creativity of God in all variety of existence,
hold the saints rooted where they stand:
as they survey what God has placed before their eyes and senses –
that which is established from the colour wheel of God –
that which plays and sounds the strains of music from the snippets of eternity –
that which fills the stage as orchestrated by The Living God:
as the curtain of eternity rises on the stage settings of grandeur of decoration as so placed by God.
The wonders of the heavens are filled with the creativity of the ages,
are filled from the beginning to fulfilment,
are filled and upheld by the spoken word of God in action with intent.”
