You did indeed paint a glorious picture. Oh how I wish that day was today! But, "soon and very soon"...
A beautiful poem! I got "an urgent feeling" by just reading this. :D Thank you.
A real joy to read! Thrilling topic! The image of the 'leaden feet' and why they didn't 'lift off' is very creative too! Wonderful poem!
Really enjoyed the picture you painted and the way the rhythm contributed to the sense of urgency. Well done.

What an inspiring poem. Capturing the fear of one who wanted to go to heaven but thought they were not going--how real. But if we love and serve Him, he will return for us and our bodies will be made beautiful and pure for all eternity! I loved this poem. The words flowed so effortlessly and lovingly:)
I too loved how you made the feet feel earthbound. Made me wonder where you were headed for a moment. Beautiful job!

Yes, a lovely moment of tension and then you were up, up and away. Very well done. Yeggy
Great job! You made me see Jesus in the clouds, feel your concern when you didn't rise immediately, your joy in his presence. This motivated me to praise Him now. Thanks!
