The Sounds of Heaven
By Floyd N. Denny

Floyd writes: I am a rededicated Christian enjoying all of God's blessings and trying to pass them along.

Have you ever taken the time to stop and listen to the sounds of heaven?

It’s a simple thing to do, often passed by many who never take the time to enjoy one of God's greatest gifts.

It’s a melody to ease the burdens of the heart, brought on by life's trials and tribulations.

It’s a gift if you will remind yourself of life's purest and most simple treasures often lost with life's struggles and responsibilities.

Is it the wind gently blowing through the trees, often not making a sound?

Is it a drop of water creating life's ripples throughout a pond?

Is it a humming bird flying by?

Is it the song of a whippoorwill in the springtime?

Is it just taking the time to listen and participate in your own carefree happiness; or the laughter of your children as they play without a care in the world until tomorrow brings another sunny day to play; or just enjoying your girl’s warmth as you gently hold her close enough to hear the contentment in her heart beat; or is it the raging sound that one’s son makes with just a flicker of his eye because he has just done something to make his father stand one hundred feet tall with pride!

I say it is definitely the sound of your baby girl’s voice when she simply calls out "daddy".

So if you want to hear the sounds that heaven makes, take the time to turn around and just remember all of God's blessings, and you will realize they make the loudest noise.
