Keep on thinking
about Paradise
When every tear
will be wiped away
and everything
will be so nice
Keep on thinking
about Paradise

In the new world
that is coming
there will be
no more mourning
or souls with sadness
in their eyes
Keep on thinking
about paradise!

------- Author's Notes -------

Can you see, in your mind's eye, a perfect place? Keep on thinking about paradise!
Love & Guava & Pineapples, Ben

Terrie*, guava juice will be on the "house" in.

Terrie*, guava juice will be on the "house" in Paradise. And, yes, according to the prophecies in the book of Isaiah the lion will lay down with the lamb and even the animals will be peaceful in Paradise. I like reading about it and picturing it in my "mind's eye". People dancing and twirling because they are happy creates a good picture, too. Thank you, girlfriend, for your positive comment, I do really appreciate it. I am glad to know you like this one!
Warm Regards, Ben

Barb, yes, keep on dreaming that someday we'll be in that place where there is no stress, no pressure and plenty of guava for everyone! I will be hoping to see you putt-putting around there on your motor-scooter, singing at the top of your lungs and waving at all the happy people, girlfriend! Thank you very much for your comment here. I am happy you like this one, and appreciate you letting me know.
Best Regards, Ben

Barb, you are just TOO FUNNY for words now! Of course in Paradise you'd be able to out-sing the birds in the trees while you're zipping around on that scooter of yours! Thank you for the laugh, though....I needed that!
Best Regards, Ben

Joyce Ivy, Oh so, so much better......

Joyce Ivy, Oh so, oh so much better to reunite with loved ones in Paradise and be there all together! I am sorry for your loss of dear ones. It's the hardest part of being human, losing loved ones. Yeah, Revelation 21: 3-5 is a great help to keep on thinking about Paradise. The book of Isaiah has some very good prophecies about what it will be like as well. I thank you very much for your comment, and thank YOU for sharing with me. Hang in there, Joyce!
Kind Regards, Ben
