So, I did promise pictures of our latest fun purchase….which, somehow, seem a bit petty to me. Perhaps I feel this way after the messages from yesterday at church – I’m not really sure. Our pastor finished a series about the end times with a sermon about Heaven. Heaven. A topic so dear to every Christian heart, I suppose, but even more so when “part of your heart” is there. It was a message filled with hope and encouragment; yet, for some reason, I have been so heavy hearted since then.
I LOVE – that Tyler is there…and experiencing all that awaits us in Heaven.
I HATE – that Tyler is there…without us.
I LOVE – the assurance that we will know (and be known) – and long to see Tyler once again.
I HATE – the possibility of more separation here in order to gain Heaven.
It is hard to explain. However, I suppose even the apostle Paul felt this total mix of emotions….desiring Heaven, yet torn. Enough with my feelings for the day. I did say I would have pictures……..
TA DA…we (finally) bought a pool table. We like to think of it as “big kid” fun. Mind you, I have NO idea how to play pool but we have already had alot of fun trying to learn something about the game. I do know that whenever my husband scratches on the last eight ball – I win!! I might still have all my balls on the table – but I win!! We have wanted a pool table for quite awhile but had zero room for it in our other house so we are excited to get one…and look forward to a lot of fun when everyone is home! (My Jordan is really good at this game!!)
I would actually have more pictures but WHY is loading photos from blogger so time consuming and frustrating?!?!? Does anyone else have this problem? I want to place them in a certain place in the post but, oh no, they place themselves wherever they want!! UGH. My hats off to those of you who can post zillions of beautiful photos in a single post. I’d be here all day. But you got the idea:)
