I recieved a piece of mail today thanking Dan and I for our contribution and encouraging us to continue to “lay up treasures in heaven” by, of course, contributing more money. For some reason that phrase really struck me. It was probably that word “heaven”. I got to wondering if Dan is even noticing the treasures that he “laid up”. If Jesus is our focus then our true treasure will be Him and our relationship with Him. Dan’s not gloating in the “many jewels in his crown” or the piles of treasure he earned, or the beautiful house Jesus made for him. He’s delighting in a perfect relationship with his Lord and Maker.
Me, I’m just missing my “treasure” that I “laid up” in heaven.
If “Home is Where the Heart Is” then “This World is Not My Home, I’m Just A Passing Through”
I guess I still have 7 (8 if you count Paleb) little pieces of my heart right here. I just wish that faulty heart with a hole in it was still here next to mine sharing in those little pieces. I told Dan it would be miserable being married to him if he was perfect. Well, now that he’s perfect, I’m miserable.
