Going Home

There's a new addition to my links. My great friend, Allan Stanglin -- the new Preaching Minister for the Legacy Church of Christ in North Richland Hills, Texas -- has begun blogging. You'll get a kick out of Allan's insights. Give it a look today.


Speaking of blogs, check out this entry by my little sister. Are the words insanely jealous an appropriate response?


We're going home today and going home never meant so much is it does today. I am so excited about getting to meet my little niece and nephew face-to-face. I'm excited about watching my girls play with their baby cousins. I am excited about the impact all the young life of the kids will have on our entire family. I'm excited about the full-day of visits in Hot Springs Village on Wednesday with many dear brothers and sisters who have encouraged me through the years. And I am excited about getting to see and spend time with my parents and my grandparents.

Going home is great! And yet, I sense that today's journey is but a living parable of the ultimate home-going; the journey into eternity and the presence of our Heavenly Father.

I'm going to take a blog vacation until Monday when First Principles Day Camp begins in earnest. God has blessed us with 8 baptisms the last 4 weeks and I'm praying that Day Camp and YBC will only yield more productive kingdom fruit!

Till then, read Revelation 21: a divine postcard from the destination of our ultimate home-going journey.
