The Beauty of Complete Fulfillment

This quote by Mark Buchanon makes my heart happy!  Oh to know the feeling of complete rest and the satisfaction of my soul!  Come Lord Jesus, Come quickly!

“Why won’t we be bored in heaven? Because it’s the one place where both impulses–to go beyond, to go home–are perfectly joined and totally satisfied. It’s the one place where we’re constantly discovering–where everything is always fresh and the possessing of a thing is as good as the pursuing of it–and yet where we are fully at home–where everything is as it ought to be and where we find, undiminished, that mysterious something we never found down here….And this lifelong melancholy that hangs on us, this wishing we were someone else somewhere else, vanishes too. Our craving to go beyond is always and fully realized. Our yearning for home is once and for all fulfilled. The Ahh! of deep satisfaction and the aha! of delighted surprise meet, and they kiss.”
