We raised tangerines in our little orchard, and oranges too. Towards evening, when the dusk had enveloped the atmosphere, the orchardsphere was full of citric smell. The kind of scent that is peculiar to pregnant orange plants whose pollinated stigma has just begun to form seeds. It was that kind of scent that made me wonder the awesomeness of nature and how God was careful and meticulous about every fabric that wove into what we have as earth today. Yet a new thought fascinates me more. If God spent six days in making earth and it’s this beautiful and awesome, then how awesome would a world still under construction after two thousand years look? Jesus told me in John. 14: 1-3 that He’s gone to prepare a place for me. And when He’s done, would come to take me there. He has been preparing that place for the past two thousand years. If there are gonna be orchards with tangerines and oranges filling the heavensphere with their scents then, wow!, that scent is going to be magnificent. Nevertheless, it’s not all about the plants. What of the buildings?; The technology, the art, the science, the poetry, the choir? What of the ice-cream and eggs (if I’m to take my Sunday School teacher seriously) and all that we can imagine? Awe, what of the water? What colour would the rivers be? Would they be pinkish blue or silvery gold? Ah! The stones, would they be transparent like glass? If we planted trees there, would they grow and blossom and bear fruits immediately, because a thousand years are like a day to God? What will it feel like walking on the streets of gold? Would I ever wanna put on shoes? How would PENSPEAK in heaven look? When Beulah Speaks his poetry, Cindy Dike, her mellifluous niche of words, UC TRUTH reciting the book of Ruth. Would Jedidiah need to walk round and share PENSPEAK fliers or would she just look at people and they’ll know place, time, venue and come? What is it gonna be like worshiping God forever, singing poetry and rhymes into His ear? Oh, is He really gonna hear us all if we said our various poems at the same time? I can’t wait to find out how heaven is and how PENSPEAK would be. It’s not gonna be PENSPEAK 2016 or PENSPEAK 2017, it’s gonna be PENSPEAK ad infinitum. You are invited. Please don’t miss it.
