Home! Part 2 !!

We are home - again. We are blessed to have 3 homes. I guess where we are now is our summer home. We live in Michigan 7 months of the year. We love the summers here. The picture was taken about 6 blocks, 5 minute walk from the house. We decided to go watch the sunset on Indian Lake.

Our winter home is in Florida. We spend 5 months during the winter in Florida. We love it! We feel blessed to have the 2 homes. Both very different, different set of friends, 2 different churches, we love both. We do different things in both locations to serve Christ.

But we have a 3rd home we haven't seen yet - our eternal home. Lots of unanswered questions there. Will mama and I be together there? I don't know. I hope so - we have been together here for 45 years in July. Hopefully lots of years to go - either here or in our eternal home.

Hope you stop by and visit someday. Anyone of our 3 homes.

YES you DO know you if you and IL Mama will be there together. We have assurance. If you aren't me and we'll 'talk' more.

I just wanted to tell you that I'm not speaking to you. You've left the promised land and headed back to Yankee land. =P

That is a beautiful picture of a loving couple, you and Mama. It's actually a threesome, you, Mama and God.

Sunrise and sunset are my favorite parts of the day. Although now I mostly stay under the covers when dawn comes calling.

Indian Lake Papa said...

Parsley - I would be extremely disappointed if mama was not my pardner there.

Crossview - But I still like you M!! boo hoo!!

Ed, Your words are very special. It was a beautiful evening!

CrossView said...

I still like you. I'm just not speaking to you. =P

Peter Olson said...

Aw! So romantic! You two are a couple of sweethearts. ;-)

I tried that once ~ blanket on the beach ~ watching the sunset ~ what's that smell? ~ yuck! ~ dog poo!
Ha! Ha! Nothing spoils a romantic moment like dog poop!

I look forward to seeing you at that third house someday. ;-)

God Bless You Both with many more of those romantic moments. (poo-free of-course!)

I love this picture Papa, it gives me hope for my future.... Love you!

Indian Lake Papa said...

Peter - nothing like a nice sunset with your best friend!!

Deb - Be assured - whatever God has in store for your life, He has a Divine purpose for you. Just be careful and don't rush any thing. Maybe someday we can watch a sunset and talk about God's plan for Deb.

I do believe you and mama will be together in Heaven. As always, a very thoughtful post.
Be blessed.

LA - I believe you are right. I know I will recognize you up there - the nose and mustache will give you away quickly. LOL
