Temporary Home

On Friday my wife's family were visiting together at her aunts house talking about her dad and remembering the good times we had together. It was raining outside and the afternoon coffee hit the spot as we sat on the big couch next to the fire place. It was a good place to be together after the small private funeral we had for my father in law that afternoon. The shock of his sudden passing still lingers, but the support we have from family, friends and the church keep our broken hearts together.

I find it ironic that during our vacation, in our home away from home, is where he was taken away to heaven. I have heard countless sermons from Pastor Bob in 13 years and I think his final sermon is one that I have heard before. He would say that our lives on earth are like visiting someones house for a family event. There are many people and things that make us feel comfortable during our short stay, but this is just a short visit in this temporary home. (note the snow at the end of the music video)

For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:17-18
