heaven  < 3 of 4 >

Where your treasure is . . . 

treasures in heaven 

wealth without envy
trust without fear
love without lusting
power without pride
peace without injustice
joy without sadness

these are our inheritance

cf Matthew 6 vv 19-20  Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.

Third of four poems in the sequence Heaven.
