Ring Side Seating from Heaven?
I'm just missing my mom again. Yesterday Matt, my brother, closed on his first new home! I'm so excited for him and proud for him. I got to thinking about how if Mom were here, she'd be over there at his new home cleaning, arranging furniture and hanging curtains or something. Yep - all in one day! That stuff is right up her alley, or was, rather. I went to help Matt, but he wasn't there at the time I stopped by. I just sent him a text with what I was thinking. I hope I didn't bring him down reminding him of Mom. I don't think I did, but who knows. Also, my garden is going so well - thank you Lord! I know Mom would be impressed b/c usually everything I touch usually wilts right before your eyes. I wonder if God allows those who have gone on to heaven to sit in on a little moments like their son's new home, or their daughter's vegetable garden. I think that would be neat if He does. It's a little comforting to me in a way to think of God giving Mom a ringside view of the happy times in our lives. I just remembered the verses in Hebrews about a cloud of witnesses - so I wonder if it applies to things like this.
