Another Paradise

Bob Dylan, "When He Returns"

"Like a thief in the night, He will replace wrong with right with a healing touch."

There is another Paradise. God calls it Heaven. Jesus told his friend hanging on the cross next to Him that soon they'd see each other in Paradise. I take comfort in the fact that even though justice is a struggle here on this earth, God has created a perfect one untouched by unholy sin in another reality, and He has invited us all to be with Him in it through His Door, His Logos, His Son. Let's leave this earthly winter, follow our Lord to a Heavenly Hawaii. He made a really great one, but we polluted it, but all is not lost.
