This walk on earth pushes me to God. I can't even imagine being able to hold up under it all without Him. My hope is in Him and all that He promises. God created the world in 6 days, and my kids reminded me the other day that Jesus said before he left this world that he was going to prepare a place for us, and He's been up in heaven for over 2000 years getting it ready for us. Sometimes the earth leaves me speachless, I can't even imagine what he could do in over 733,000 days.
Staying behind here though and waiting can be very difficult. I find myself always looking for a balanced life, while there are moments I feel close to it, they are fleeting. People say " Why can't I (we,you) be normal?", I always want to say, "Normal is heaven!", we aren't ever going to feel like we belong here. So while I am an alien on this planet, I hope that I can record the marvelous things that God does for me, my family and my friends during our visit. I hope that it becomes a place I can share our pain, joy and everything in between. Welcome to my thoughts, experiences, laughter, and tears. I can't wait to see what God does with this.
