Midweek Morsel: A Winner Plus a Taste of Heaven


With Mother’s Day just a few days away, it’s time to announce the winner of the Going Natural Giveaway. The lucky lady who gets a $20 gift certificate to Eco Natural Soap is—drum roll, please—Flea! Congrats, Flea! Have fun selecting your winnings!

And now some winnings for the rest of us. How about a taste of heaven? Since this will be my mom’s first Mother’s Day in heaven, it’s going to be tough one for me but a glorious one for her. Join me today, won’t you, in reading a few verses about heaven straight from the Word of God. May they comfort you the way they comfort me.

“All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance . . . they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.” Hebrews 11:13, 16

“But you have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. You have come to thousands and thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God . . .” Hebrews 12:22-23a

May your weekend be touched with the promise, the comfort, and the joy of heaven. Look up with me today!
