Heaven is a beautiful place—as beautiful as a bride is glorious on her wedding day. At present we see beauty imperfectly, through fuzzy spectacles, and from the underside of a magnificent tapestry. We wait in faith and hope for the Beauty that promises to fulfill us completely one day.

And when that day arrives, when we step through one of heaven’s jeweled gates and walk on her translucent gold streets, we will take it all in, breathing deeply until we become one with Splendor.

Until then, C.S. Lewis says, we are like little children who too easily settle for “making mud pies in a slum because we cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea.”
