Soon Autumn splendor will decorate my world in RED, GOLD and ORANGE.
And like so many autumns before it will bring on the winter snows,
a time of quiet stillness here in the northwoods that is like no other. Where you can actually hear the ice growing on the lakes or where you can hear snow falling and hitting the earth, its a special place filled with wonder and inspiration everyday you step into the crisp cool air! Here is where you can spend days without seeing others or if you center yourself near town you can see people until sunset…they we all tuck ourselves into our homes and spend nights relaxing by the fire, with a good book, blanket and a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows. Yes there is nothing like life here in the northwoods. I often wonder if its because I have been here so long that this is home and nothing else will ever be home to me. But I know that is not the case as I have been created for a greater place than this. I am HEAVEN bound.
From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.”
When the dead rise, they will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.
Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.
So when will HE come? When will I be a part of HEAVEN? Will I actually get to heaven? Am I really forgiven of my sins? We are not to worry about that, and just be patient.
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? …
1 Thessalonians 5:2
for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.
So we are to keep living life to its fullest each day, send all praise to God, and enjoy our time here on this spinning marble in space.
