When Eileen and I visited California, we ooohed and aaahed for days. America is so beautiful! Lawns are immaculately manicured. The houses are so huge and beautiful. Shopping is awesome. So much to choose from! And don't even get me started on the candy. Most people had nice huge cars. Nice hair and makeup. Nice clothes. Nice, nice furniture.
The Lord saw fit to remind me several times while I was there that I do not belong there. Too bad. Nor do I belong in Chile. I do belong in Heaven, and I'm on my way. Just passing through this place that will someday fade as quickly as a memory of a dream. I shouldn't get too attached to anything here. Why should I? This place is a rental. No sense putting down roots in a rental.
Now, what is Heaven like? Not sure, but I have a hunch I'm going to feel right at home.
