Water of Life

The angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb.  Revelation 22:1

When we look around us at all the beauty God has blessed us with and we see the mighty rivers He gave us we get a feeling of awe.  When we look as these rivers and the beautiful paths they have carved through the country side we get just a glimpse of the crystal river flowing through Heaven.  O what a beautiful picture that paints in my mind with all the loved ones that have gone on before me standing there to welcome me home.

Shall We Gather At The River?
by Robert Lowry, 1864

Shall we gather at the river,
Where bright angel feet have trod,
With its crystal tide forever
Flowing by the throne of God?

Yes, we'll gather at the river,
The beautiful, beautiful river;
Gather with the saints at the river
That flows by the throne of God.


  1. Beautiful. As I grow older I grow closer... When I was younger I hated the thought of leaving 'all this' behind...of what would happen & I wouldn't be here to see it, share in it. Now, there is a peace that comes over me when I think of it.
