Temporary Home.

I think as long as we're on this earth we'll long for eternity.

This is just our temporary home, we're just passing through.

Honestly, this life, this world, it hurts. It's hard. There's pain. There's heartache.

But there's the promise of eternity.

Revelation 21:3-6
3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.
4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."
5 He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!" Then he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."
6 He said to me: "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life. 

Eternity, it's hard to grasp. The bible obviously talks so much about eternity but you still can't even wrap your mind around it.

But one thing I do know, there's no way I could survive without the knowledge, hope, and peace of eternity!

Lord, please always let me remember this is just my temporary home. The hurts, trials, and struggles of this world are nothing compared to eternity.

Eternity spent with you.

Such great words! I have been reading your blog and following Larry's story of faith and love. Thank you for sharing and inspiring us to trust God and hold on to his promises. I lost my father to cancer last year but God has never left my side. He has strengthened my family and me daily!

Lauren, the older you get the more you realize that life is just a vapor! Thank goodness heaven is eternal!
