Oh, the sweet thought of eternal glory and the eternal fellowship with God that awaits believers should comfort us and give us much hope!
If you have been following my blog for some time now, you know that I love to take situations from life and draw parallels between them and the Bible’s teaching.
It was a drive from Texas a while ago that inspired these scribbles.
Roadtrip + Texas
Last spring, I was doing all my work and meetings online while the “Stay at Home” order was enforced. So my family and I decided to drive 22 hours to Texas to visit some relatives to escape the dreadful isolation of the Coronavirus quarantine.
Fabi and the kids were having a blast with our family while I continued my daily work online. Although we had a good time, all things come to an end, and after a month in the home of cowboys, we decided it was about time to saddle up and head back west.
The ride home was another 22 hours, with an overnight stop at an overpriced motel room in Las Cruces in New Mexico.
The ride was long, but the kids were troopers. At times, they became restless and had had enough. To help them with their discontentment, I asked them, “What are you looking most forward to at home in California?”
They began talking about their bunnies, friends, and beds (I guess they have nice beds). It made them completely forget about their current situation, discomfort, and the many hours before reaching our final destination.
