The path to Heaven

Of course! (T)he path to heaven

doesn’t lie down in flat miles.

It’s in the imagination

with which you perceive

this world,

and the gestures

with which you honor it.

 

Excerpt from “The Swan” by Mary Oliver.

Can you believe that God trusts us enough to let us use our imagination and gestures in this world as we progress towards Heaven?!?  How cool it is to be part of the creation as it unfolds.
