Progress seems slow,
and it gets expensive.
But there is a reason and purpose for it.
We are preparing a place for my father to come and live comfortably with us!
I can hardly wait for the project to be finished!
And meanwhile, I often think about Jesus' words in John 14:2-3:
My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so,
would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?
And if I go and prepare a place for you,
I will come back and take you to be with me
that you also may be where I am.
Jesus, too, has a "project"! He's "preparing a place for me"!
His purpose is that one day I can be where He is.
I can hardly wait.
