As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this nearly six-acre tract of land, this farmhouse, this domain—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Today


Today is mine. 

Tomorrow is none of my business.

If I peer anxiously into the fog of the future,
I will strain my spiritual eyes so that I will not clearly see what is required of me now.


Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart, p. 53

  5. I love the wisdom of EElliot. One of the highlights of my LIFE was getting to hear her speak in person and meeting her afterwards.
