At the end of the book of John, we’re told
Jesus did many other things, that if they were
all written down, the whole world would not
have room for the books that would be written.
I think that could also be said,
of what God did at creation.
It’s amazing to me to realize
he’s doing it again, creating
a new heaven and a new earth.
It’s thrilling to imagine,
what no eye has seen, no
ear has heard, and no mind
*2 Peter 3:13, I Corinthians 2:9
