The Door That Never Closes

There's a door that never closes,
though it opens but one way-
It's the door that leads to Heaven
at the end of life's long day.
It's the threshold of forever
where the heart is always glad,

It's a respite for the weary
and a comfort for the sad.
It's the door to peace and healing
and the door to joy and grace
Where the Master greets each quest by name
and with a warm embrace.

And the loved ones who pass through
into the light that's shining there
Find a sweet and perfect home
within our Father's loving care.

My old door collection is steadily growing.
I see a new one and I just have to have it.
Where it will end I do not know.
There is just something about the rust, chips and dents.
French blue, pink, yellow, black, white and just plain plain...

Have a lovely day.

Beautiful collection. Do you collect these from Pinterest or do you collect them through your travels? I love them all and couldnt pick a favorite..

I love looking at doors and see a purple door knob that would look at home here. You should visit Georgianna Lane's photography blog where she has the same passion for doors.
