Earth’s birth created heavenly mirth.
And then…reality struck.
And the rocks cried out.
Here’s a favorite photo of mine that represents my personal heaven on earth:
- Mounds of Earth, as the Smoky Mountains reach up to greet the heavens (aka, My Heaven on Earth)
And here are some earthy finds I came across in the Holy Land, where many pilgrims travel to try to make sense of heaven on earth.
A Millstone, resting in the earth (which is much better than being tied around one’s neck)
an earthy well
excavated portion of the earth thought to be the Apostle Peter’s house in the fishing village, Capernaum
Cities & Tunnels lie Beneath the Earth – if I recall correctly, this is an open portion of the Via Dolorosa in Old Jerusalem
- Excavation site in Jericho (I marched around it a few times)
Interesting find while hiking the Wadi Qelt
An Efficient way to Travel the Terrain of the sometimes harsh Earth
Bedouins living an earthy existence
Dramatically sculpting a dwelling within the Earth
So, what place on earth do you like to claim as your own slice of heaven?
