So Much More. . .

While on our recent vacation, we walked the "Freedom Trail" in Boston, MA. At one

point we took advantage of one of the many resting areas located through the city of Boston. We sat on benches and tables across from Paul Revere's house and feasted on goodies from a local pastry shop.

As I looked up and down the street, I could easily see there was so much more to see and do than we could ever squeeze into our three days in this historical city.

There were delightful looking Italian restaurants waiting for us on this street, pastry shops galore, historical sites we had not yet reached, and venues of culture and beauty that we would not begin to venture into.

I wondered how long it would take for us to fully explore this town and exhaust all it had to offer. Would it be weeks, months, years? Could one ever fully know a city that was changing and growing even as you tried to explore its past?

That, I believe, will be our marvelous experience of heaven. The more we try to delve into the glory that is our Lord, the wonder that is our God, the more we will find we do not know, the more we will find there is to know. We will ever be discovering more and more details of glory, more venues of beauty, more avenues of Grace. We will never be able to out-discover His majesty and abundance.
