Heaven

August 10th and the Bible Verse prompt is Heaven. It is so hard to narrow it down to one verse, there are so many encouraging ones!

I’ll choose this section of scripture from Colossians 1: 15-20 on the Preeminence of Christ with heaven mentioned twice:

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities–all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.

Feel free to share your verses about heaven in the comments or on your blog. I’ll add them here. Thank you ahead of time.

From my sister Vera:

You alone are the Lord. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you. Nehemiah 9:6

From Patsystitch:

Genesis 15:5
And he brought him outside and said, “Look toward heaven, and number the stars, if you are able to number them.” Then he said to him, “so shall your offspring be”

From Maristella:

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Matthew 19:14 | NIV

From Happy One:

Matthew 24:35-36 KJV

HEAVEN and earth shall pass away,
but my words shall not pass away.

But of that day and hour knoweth no man,
no, not the angels of HEAVEN,
but my Father only.

Back to our Country Bungalow. We had our Colville kids over for dinner on Saturday and the kids had fun climbing our mountains of dirt and riding in our new dump cart.

Addy scaled both mountains of dirt and had to scoot on her bum to get back down.

Jaymison enjoyed picking up rocks, the larger the better. So pleased our kids are not fussy about their kids playing in dirt!

Jaymison was a little hesitant when he first sat in the dump wagon but soon was enjoying the ride with some “vroom vroom” noises and giggles!

Happy Monday to you all.

  1. Aw – I can imagine how much fun those dirt piles and the wagon were for your sweets! I’ve been missing your daily word posts and need to go back to read them all. What a great idea and project to research them in the Bible! We can all use some bible wisdom these days!

  2. Give kids a little dirt and they can have fun for hours.
    Sounds like Ken and rocks! 🙂
    Like everyday I’ll be posting my Heaven verse later this evening.

    Dirt piles are always fun for children to explore! T these look like mini mountains
