SHARING and CARING…it’s what LIFE is all about!

The Gates of Heaven

“Sunsets are so beautiful that they almost seem as if we were looking through the gates of Heaven. Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea are excellent schoolmasters and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.”

    Love this quote. 🙂 We cannot comprehend the magnificent beauty that awaits believers. John Lubbock was right, The Pleasures of Life like a sunset and nature reveal only a glimpse beyond the gates of Heaven.

      I discovered this quote not very long ago and loved it! As it turned out, we had just returned from visiting friends on their island cottage in the Muskokas. Wanting to get back to our trailer at MBC before dark never happened, and I was so glad! We were privileged to see a beautiful sunset and knew I needed to share it somehow. This quote made it very easy!
