Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?”
JOHN 14: 1-5
Good morning Ladies,
As a little girl and young woman I read design magazines instead of magazines like Cosmo because my mother forbid them saying they were anti-marriage, anti-woman, and not something a proper lady should waste her time or money on. So design magazines it was.
When I first began blogging one of my favorite things to do was to see the insides of other women's houses and how they decorated them. As I continued to read my own home began to pale in my eyes and I started longing to have "What she had." But then one day I remembered that life is not about having the perfect home and accessories, but about living our lives for the Lord and sharing His love with those around us and preparing us for our eternal home with Him. After all, He said He goes to prepare a place for us.
Do you believe they are literal mansions or that He's just speaking figuratively?
I believe they're literal and am hoping mine has floors made of Rubies.
I hope you all have a lovely day filled with wonderful thoughts of Him.
