It's JUST a dot!

Is it any wonder we won't need light bulbs in heaven?
Can you even imagine seeing Him face to face?
I once heard someone describe life as the dot before eternity. It would look something like this.

. -----------------------------------

The dot is our life-the space between is death and the line is eternity.
God reminds me not to get so wrapped up in this life and its ups and down...........when we step into eternity this life will seem a dim memory-- if remembered at all.
In the light of His glory why would I want to remember hands smudged from newspaper print, boxes overflowing with items needing to be packed and pizza that showed up two hours after being ordered?
The good thing about the last one.........dinner was Free!
Sometimes it pays to have someone forget about you. ;)

Have a great day..............and if you start to get a little stressed about the details of life-----
try and remember
this is just the dot.


Exodus 34:29 (The Message)

29-30 When Moses came down from Mount Sinai carrying the two Tablets of The Testimony, he didn't know that the skin of his face glowed because he had been speaking with God. Aaron and all the Israelites saw Moses, saw his radiant face, and held back, afraid to get close to him.

Although we know we are only here for a short time, sometimes it's hard to remember that when going through a rough patch. Thanks for the reminder.

Yes it's true. Perspective eh? Hard to grab in the midst of it all. Was praying for you during the night - for your new home, leaving the current one, for your family and for joy, that God would give you a lightness in your heart, let those burdens roll, enjoy Him and that intimacy with him. Joy, Joy, Joy.

Sharon,

Yes, life is just a dot but we need to remember to use this time to its fullest advantage to learn His Word and to become closer to Him.

Thanks for sharing. I am keeping you in my prayers.

Blessings and love,
Mary

Hi, it's me Dot! Seriously, I haven't had a chance to read many blogs this week and have only read this one so far. Are you moving? Are we neighbors? Oh cool! How are things with you? Thank you for keeping in touch and being patient with me. I'm hoping to catch up on my correspondence this weekend.

Lovely post, Sharon. I didn't know that Moses' face glowed after speaking with God - nice to learn that!

Take care - have a good weekend - Kellan

I LOVE this perspective! And I needed it! Right after putting a post on HOPE up, hubby and I went outside to check our pump, it seems that our well MAY be going dry. What we do know is we are sucking air up with our water....we still have plenty, but the air is NOT a good sign...I have peace though. God has brought us through so much, and He knows we don't have the money in sight for a new well at this time...so, this is all on HIM! :) I'm pretty sure He is up for the job! :)


much love,
Maria

Edge of Design said...

I meant to say, I'm excited for you and perhaps even more excited for me to know you'll be my neighbor soon. How cool is that? You may even get a chance to meet me. hahahhaa God is good!

Yes, this is so short and we put so much effort into it almost sad? Nope heaven will be so great we will not have time to look back.
