tents have been folded.

Someone called and read me this verse in the middle of my Dad's sickness.
It brought me much comfort, and continues to, knowing that the Lord was indeed folding my Dad's tent and putting it away...
but it has now been traded for a heavenly body.
A perfect, healthy, thriving, resurrection body.
Praise Jesus.

"For we know that when these bodies of ours are taken down like tents and folded away, they will be replaced by resurrection bodies in heaven - God-made, not handmade - and we will never have to relocate our "tents" again.

Sometimes we can hardly wait to move - and so we cry out in frustration. Compared to what's coming, living conditions around here seem like a stopover in an unfurnished shack, and we are tired of it!

We have been given a glimpse of the real thing, our true home, our resurrection bodies!

The Spirit of God whets our appetite by giving us a taste of what's ahead. 
He puts a little of heaven in our hearts, so that we will never settle for less."

2 Corinthians 5:1-5

May you remember today that as a child of God, this indeed is NOT our home.
So so thankful for that.
