A Father Unlike His Son

You know if you always have something, you don't want it all the time. Like the grass is always greener on the other side. I think that if heaven were always open for us to see any ol' time we wanted to see it, we wouldn't want to go there. It's like when you were a kid and you loved playing with your friend's toys then you had to go back home to play with yours. Like when you live at a beautiful beach or other sought after vacation spot you don't see the beauty in what you have all around you. If we saw heaven we wouldn't want to go, because we have already seen its splendor.
It's like knowing the ending to a movie before you go to see it. Who wants that? Not me. God's promise is sufficient for me. I am at that point in my walk that I know that much.
God's blessing is the single most important thing that has ever happened in my life. I have graduated from college, twice. I have gotten married, had two beautiful kids, been to visit a few of God's creations, but none can ever surpass the day I realized that I had received the riches and blessings of the Lord God, Almighty. Without Him, there is no hope of heaven. There is no hope of anything good and joyful, in my opinion. There is no promise. And I know that I could not go on without that. What would be the use?
Thank you, God that You gave that to me!


  1. What a neat perspective. I never thought of it that way. Its true though. I love Gigi's cupcakes, but if I have them all the time, I don't get excited about them or enjoy them as much. We need to look at our families as well, like taking them for granted. We, our household, have learned not to do that. With Jeff being gone so much, we cherish each moment we have. I think we should cherish the hope we have in one day getting to see heaven.

  2. Thanks! You are totally right! I do think that we take our families for granted a lot. We should be cherishing these moments now, because before we know it, not only will this time be gone, but our children will be grown up and not want to be around us. When I was putting Kylie to bed tonight she told me that she never wanted to leave me. I just happened to think, "I still hope she says that when she is 13!" Now I know why I just happened to think that!
