When God opens Heaven's gates
as we cross that gulf so wide,
the arms of Jesus, open
as our soul will there abide.

When God opens Heaven's gate
we'll see beauty all around,
our loved ones, too, will greet us
as we leave this earthly ground.

When God opens Heaven's gates
there'll be singing angels there,
the awesome peace and joyfulness
will permeate the air.

When God opens Heaven's gates
and His light takes place of day,
Jesus welcomes us forever
as the one's who found "the way."

Melanie,
Isn't it wonderful we have a God who will open these Beautiful Gates to the Redeemed of all ages. Thank you for reminding us & heading us in the right direction!

Julie...I definitely enjoyed relishing in the moment! I like the ending too thanks, cause if we are to enter the gates we must have found the way!

David...You are quite welcome and thank you for reading! It is definitely wonderful to have a God that will do that and SO many other wonderful things for us.

Michael...Thank you kindly!

Pepper...Thank you. The challege was inspired by a precious moments picture. I saw it in a book my brother has and since i love to draw (you can ask Rebecca that) I decided to draw it and while doing so I wanted to write a poem about it, and also see what others thought of when they imaged God opening Heaven's gates. Thank you for reading!

Yes, a beautiful poem. We so often forget the great hope promised us. I'd change the final line to "As one who's found the Way."
