Greatest Show on Earth


Headmaster John Ringling of the famous Ringling Brothers Circus opened every performance with the words, “Ladies, Gentlemen and Children of all ages.” As a young child, I enjoyed car pooling with our neighbors to attend the Shrine circus. The excitement of seeing three ton elephants, fierce tigers, horses and colorful clowns kept a smile on every child—including mine. The  circus became an annual event for our small town from 1893 to the 1966. 

Although the circus was once my favorite events, one day when I leave this earth, I will enter a place filled with beauty, awe, peace and endless joy. It is called Heaven. It will be my “Greatest Home-Forever.” I am so thankful God saved me.

Revelation 21:4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
