Although, I guess that really isn't my home either. My home is in heaven. I wonder if I should be homesick for heaven? I guess I should long and desire to go home to my home in heaven. And I suppose that I should long more for that home then my earthly home. I wonder why I don't? Where do you strike the balance? How do you long for heaven and live your life? Because when I am longing for my earthly home, it distracts me from the jobs that I am doing. How can you long for heaven and not let it distract you from what you are supposed to be doing right now? Maybe it is just keeping heaven in your thoughts and remembering that this world is not our home and we are just passing through... If we were to keep this in our minds, the things of this earth wouldn't seem so important all the time. I don't know... there are a few random thoughts for you all to think about or read and go on with your lives.
1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
4And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
5Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
That last verse was thrown in there for Luke. If any of my family sees that, please show it to him. I had to teach him this whole section for AWANA. heh. I remember that last verse quite clearly. It is really funny to hear Luke recite it.
Good night all. I have to get some sleep. I can't write anymore of this research paper tonight. It is killing me. Thank God for summer and family time!
