How did we get stuck with a language that changes the color of our words? Once you read something it becomes red no matter what color it was in the beginning.
Yes, wherever we are is here and here is there for someone.
No, we are here and we will always be here and we can never be there.

“Seriously, I got to literally walk in Jesus’ shoes!” Maybe one of the disciples (or a few of them) will say this in heaven.
“Don’t worry -- I’ve done this before.” Could have been Lazarus’ last words (and perhaps Tabitha and a couple of others).

Sarah is the only one who could reliably write on “Natural Conception and Childbirth…at 90!” and I bet Elizabeth could write the forward!
Balaam is the one who gets a blog on “Effective Communication with Your Donkey”.
And Jesus is the One and Only Who can do all of these.

Imbalance between Current Resources and Obligations = Bankruptcy
Realization of My Lack of Control and God’s Replete Supply = Reality

Number 5: Follow the signs you want to…and the ones you don’t.
