Preparing for the Children

  The last few days I have worked hard, cutting grass, cleaning out the garage, washing the carport, trimming bushes, dragging the driveway, getting out lawn chairs, etc. etc. Why? I am about to once again enjoy something you have to reach my age to enjoy. I am preparing for the coming of my children. I want things to look reasonably nice when they come. (Don't want them to think I have gone beyond keeping things up.)

  As I did all this I thought how pleased God must be as He prepares for His children to come home to heaven. The magnitude of His love for us cannot be measured because of its boundlessness. Just what He may be doing to prepare I don't have the slightest notion. But Jesus said He was going to prepare a place and I believe it. Won't it be nice?
