Beauty and the Beast

Born into beauty

Taught to believe in their God

We become ugly


“Indeed, I was born guilty, a sinner when my mother conceived me.”

Psalm 51:5 NRSV

All babies are born beautiful in the eyes of their parents. We then teach our children about a God who teaches us that all babies are born into sin passed on by the original parents. We then become ugly and unacceptable in God’s eyes. His only son must give his life to make us acceptable to him. But, even then, only a few will be accepted.

Eternal Life Is Better In Flip-Flops

Hope heaven is fun

Eternity is forever

Can I wear flip flops


Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of theĀ LordĀ for ever.

Psalms 23:6 KJV

Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die…

1 Corinthians 15:54 NLT

Have you ever wondered what we’re going to do in heaven, assuming that we get there? Surely it’s not just singing and praising God 24 hours a day and forever, is it? The Apostle Paul says that we’ll have “bodies that have been transformed into bodies that will never die.” I’m hoping that I can bring my favorite flip-flops so that I can at least be comfortable in my new body. Maybe a couple of my comfy t-shirts would be nice, too.
