John 14:2 and Mountain homes, Summit County, Colorado.
“In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.” John 14:2
Dwelling Places in God’s Presence
What a place to live! A mountain home! I’d love to live there, but I realize that it may never happen. Life and work and lack of funds keep my family and I in our humble home in a humble neighborhood. And we are very blessed to live where we live.
Someday those of us Christians who follow Christ will receive a new home. He promised that in His “Father’s house there are many dwelling places.” And that He is preparing one for you and me.
When I look at this photo I think of those “dwelling places”, our heavenly homes. Just like these homes dwell under the power and presence of a mountain, in Heaven we will live under the of power and presence of our Heavenly Father. In Him we will find peace and security forever.
Matthew 25:23 and Dawn at The Great Marsh, Fontenelle Forest, Nebraska.
“His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’” Matthew 25:23 (ESV)
Mortal Minds Could Only Imagine
“I could only imagine…” The inspiring words of first a song and then a movie. What will eternal life with Christ be like? We don’t fully know. We could only imagine, but our imaginations fall far short.
Eternal Life in Heaven will be a new dawn into something we’ve never experienced before. Heaven is something so great and magnificent our mortal minds cannot grasp it. When we enter Paradise we will enter into a never ending morning of God’s perfect love, peace and presence.

John 1:4-5 and a Wild Sunflower, Lake Manawa State Park, Iowa.
“In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.” John 1:4-5
Letting Christ’s Light Shine in You
Late every summer wild sunflowers dot the midwestern landscape. They stand high above the other flowers and grasses, yet they remain unnoticed until they bloom. Then the bright yellow blossoms shine bright against a blue sky. They standout and decorate many roadsides.
Christ, our Lord, stands out. He shines out of the darkness. The Bible tells us the darkness cannot overcome the Light of Christ. May we take His light to all people.
