this only do I seek

It might sound a little strange, but I think a lot about heaven and what it will be like. I can’t even wrap my mind around it, but I know the joy I experience when I spend time in His presence… and to experience joy like that for eternity- well, that’s going to be nothing short of AMAZING!! But you know what else I’ve been thinking about? How desperately I want EVERYONE I know to experience that same joy.
