Heaven Is Not Hostile

Bello y maravilloso!!!

The heavens are not filled with hostility. The sky does not express a frown. When I look up I do not contemplate a face of brass, but the face of infinite good will. Yet when I was a child, many a picture has made me think of God as suspicious, inhumanly watchful, always looking round the corner to catch me at the fall. That “eye,” placed in the sky of many a picture, and placed there to represent God, filled my heart with chilling fear. . . . Heaven overflows with good will toward us! Our God not only wishes good, he wills it!

– John Henry Jowett
(1863–1923)

There is but one good;
that is God.
Everything else is good
when it looks to Him
and bad when it turns
from Him.
