Home, Sweet Home

Going hunting and all the challenges that accompany that and camping in the wilderness for 10 days is incredibly fun and exciting, and we are already planning our next hunting trip. I am planning now to fly to Alaska next September and go Moose hunting on the Yukon River with my son-in-law Philip. Patty says there is no room in our living room for Moose horns! Even though it was a super adventure I am so glad to be home and sleeping in my bed instead of on the ground, taking showers every night, sitting in my hot tub, and reading in my recliner. It seems that being out camping in a tent at 8,800 feet, sleeping on the ground, using a five gallon bucket for a toilet, and eating a lot of oatmeal makes home seem even more wonderful. Contrast is a key to understanding and appreciation. Jesus said, “I go to prepare a place for you, and if I go and prepare a place for you I will come again and receive you to myself that where I am there you may be also.” I wonder all the time what that place Jesus is preparing for me looks like and what it will feel like. Living in this world with all the stuff that happens will certainly be the contrast that makes eternity in heaven with Jesus incomprehensible.
