Why Heaven Gets High Marks

Why Heaven Gets High Marks

That simple happiness that comes
from seeing someone you want
to see –

what is the source of that feeling?
You know.

Why heaven gets such high marks is
because whenever you bump into anyone there,
you get this delighted feeling.

            The great writers are the ones that can craft into words the intangible highlights of the human experience. Hafiz does this here. Although there is no singular word for his described experience, we have all felt its joy. His words are also comforting, in God’s kingdom this feeling is everywhere with every encounter. Wow. 

            Here’s a Jim Brickman song about delighting in the simple things.
