It’s an unseasonably warm blustery night. We just got in from evening church. It was a good day. The little church is full every Sunday. Over two hundred are attending. Well, it’s Thanksgiving week, one of my favorite weeks of the year. Holly just got in with the rest of the Eternal Vision Development Team. They had been visiting the Ruth Stewart’s family in Canada this weekend. Ruth is the coordinator of the Eternal Vision program.
My grandmother Pierpont went to be with the Lord Saturday morning at 9:30. This week we will be heading to Ohio for a few days for my grandma Pierpont’s funeral. Grandpa died twenty-three years ago. At nine-thirty I like to imagine they were walking along the river catching up on things, remembering old times. I’m sure that Grandpa Pierpont is still a story-teller and he has two decades of heaven to talk about. I’m sure he’s keeping her up late with his stories.
I know there is no marriage in heaven, but the fellowship of marriage, as sweet and intimate as it can be, is still troubled sometimes. In heaven our relationships will not be troubled by sin and selfishness and hurt. So though they are not married their fellowship and communion is higher and sweeter and closer than anything they ever experienced here.
We have started a new ministry here at the Character Inn and we are accepting applications on-line for our first class that will begin in January and go thorough May.
