Blizzard or Paradise…What Would You Choose?

Shared by Jane Anderson with Jed BoyerWith temperatures dropping below 0°F in the Midwest and wind chills as low as DSCN9351-39°F in Minneapolis today, I was especially grateful that Alan whisked us off toDSCN9370 celebrate our anniversary a couple of weeks early…even though it was pretty scary taking off and we weren’t dead sure we’d make it! Also, I’ve had a bad DSCN9383bronchitis since Christmas and some time in the sunshine and fresh air has been DSCN9429a healing balm for my lungs as well as our spirits! DSCN9604 Even though I protested a bit when Alan first suggested that we go, DSCN9577  thinking it was an unnecessary extravagance, it’s been such a delight, and I’ve DSCN9585been thinking about how our “heavenly husband,” Jesus prepares a place for us DSCN9593and then decides when it’s time to take us home. We may protest, thinking it’s DSCN9590too early, or we still have too much to do…or???, but when the time comes, the DSCN9434conditions change, and we find we’re sick and tired…and so ready to take off!  DSCN9578Tonight it’s 3° and snowing in GR, but it’s 72° and clear (literally) in Florida. DSCN9603I hope when the Lord calls me home to heaven, I remember this trip, DSCN9394 and how Alan provided so much more than I ever dreamed I needed. I know our DSCN9392heavenly husband will do even more for each of us who trust in Him. IMG_2269“In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if not, I would have told you. I am going away to prepare a place for you. If I go away and prepare a place for you, I will come back and receive you to Myself, so that where I am, you may be also” (John 14:2-3 HCSB).
