I had a glimpse of heaven last summer at a Joni and Friends Family Retreat.

Don’t you love glimpses of heaven? Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada and I had a glimpse of heaven last summer at a Joni and Friends Family Retreat. There I watched a row of little girls singing songs during worship time. Tears filled my eyes to see one girl in her wheelchair, another two on crutches, and a fourth with Down syndrome… all of them in a row singing their hearts out to the Lord. It was, for me, a slice of heaven, as though I were watching angels before the throne. It was a celestial moment. And you know what? Scenes like that, little glimpses of heaven, happen all the time at Family Retreats. It’s why I always look forward to attending each summer. It helps me do what Colossians says: to set my mind on things above, rather than earthly things. So consider attending a Family Retreat near you. Come and volunteer. Just visit our Family Retreat page at joniandfriends.org.
