Five Minute Fridays – Visit

Five Minute Fridays – Visit


How apropos – the word, is “visit”. I am back in Canada from my winter snowbirding in Arizona to visit my daughter and family. It is an unexpected visit – but with God we never know where He will take us. My grandson had pneumonia so I came home to help with his care as he can’t go to daycare. The pneumonia has cleared (praise the Lord) but he still has a stubborn ear infection (this is his third set of antibiotics).

What has this visit taught me?

        • God gives me energy when I need it
        • He keeps me calm and focused
        • I love being with my daughter, son-in-law and grandson
        • My husband supports me in wherever God calls me
        • I can become a Canadian again and embrace the winter – played outside with my grandson for a few minutes in the snow and cold (most of the time took putting on the winter clothes) and we made snow angels
        • playing with a new train is fun for all
        • God led me to meet a wonderful woman this morning and share my testimony

If we let God be God and follow where He leads life is beautiful, and satisfying.

Times up… 5 minutes.

Do We Know For Certain Heaven is Home for Us?

by Mary Haskett


Heaven is Home

This morning I planned to visit Jean Darling in her hospital room, but my pastor called to say she had gone to heaven.

I recall one day when I visited, she had just recovered from a bout of pneumonia, and at 94,  years old that was quite something. We sat in the lounge and talked. I said to Jean, “Your sister told me, you were quite ill last week Jean.”

“Yes,” she said, “I really thought I was going home to heaven.”

“I guess the Lord said, not yet Jean,” I responded.

“True,” she quipped, “and he has said that several times lately.” We both laughed, and I marveled at this saint of God who served on the mission field in India for a 40 year span.

Do we know with a certainty that heaven is home for us?

If we have accepted Jesus as Lord and Saviour and
indeed if we live for Him, then we too will have a place in heaven.

Remember how Jesus promised:

“In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” (John 14:2 , KJV)


Dear Lord Jesus, How grateful I am for the provisions you have made for me. I pray to be ever focused and true to you in all I do and say. Amen.
