Going Home

     Tim and I had a great time this past week. Some friends let us use their time-share at Table Rock lake next to Branson, Missouri. It was beautiful. We spent our time playing golf, shopping, going to shows and sitting around the pool reading books. We enjoyed just spending time together and not having any other responsibilities. We could do what we wanted when we wanted. You could just feel all of the stress slipping away. What a life.... You start to think if life could be like this all the time I would love it. But you know what? By Thursday, little things started happening that chiseled away at the perfect world we had found. You know things like we were staying in a one room studio condo and Tim likes to stay up late and I like to get up early. I like to watch the Hallmark channel and he likes ESPN. He snores and I don't. (OK, he says I snore but I don't believe him) We both started missing home and the routine we call life.
      Isn't it funny that when you are home you want to be on vacation and when you are on vacation you start wishing you were at home. My Aunt told me one time that  we will never be completely content in this life because we are not home yet.  Nothing in this world is perfect.  This week let's put our minds on things above not on what we have to face here.
You have been raised to life with Christ, so set your hearts on the things that are in heaven, where Christ sits on his throne at the right side of God.Keep your minds fixed on things there, not on things here on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. Your real life is Christ and when he appears, then you too will appear with him and share his glory! You must put to death, then, the earthly desires at work in you, such as sexual immorality, indecency, lust, evil passions, and greed (for greed is a form of idolatry).  Col. 3:1-5
