Not Heaven

by Macy Johnson

“Record my lament;

list my tears on your scroll –

are they not in your record?”

(Psalm 56:8 NIV)


Sunday morning I glanced out my window to catch an exquisite pre-sunrise. Shades of pink and purple splashed across the sky and announced the sun’s arrival. I walked out on my balcony to thank my heavenly Father for such a brilliant display of His glory. Hummingbirds whirred below me in the salvia bush while purple martins swooped over the water by the dock.

God's Gift Gallery

 by Macy Johnson

“Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!”

(2 Corinthians 9:15 NIV)


I was scheduled to volunteer at my local hospital’s gift shop. Mary Ellen opened the door for me and we visited for a while before she disappeared into the storage room. I moved around the displays with the help of my cane and inspected new items. A customer walked in and I noticed her employee badge.
