  1. Christine-what a wonderful analogy and a powerful story! I first read the post on your blog and then this…what incredible courage your mom had! My grandmother came here from Italy when she was 16, but had one of her sisters and her brother with her…still, 3 kids in a strange country – we can’t even wrap our minds around such a thing. Thanks for putting the idea of our heavenly citizenship in such simple, easy to understand terms 🙂 Blessings! Toni

    • Hi Toni! I smiled when I saw your name! : ) Yes, it is truly impossible for to wrap our minds around the thought leaving everything behind like that, much less to do so knowing you are going to a whole new world. Makes me want to cry just thinking about it.

      You have your grandmother’s bravery, you know! : )

  2. Take. my. breath. away. What a rapturously beautiful and profoundly power-filled story. Thank you sweet Jesus for this gift to my soul today.

  3. Christine,

    Wonderful, gripping story and great analogy! I use to be like soo many people, knowing, sort of believing, but really truly having faith! Now that life down here is ok–sort of bleak at times and I’ve matured/aged–I not only believe I’m ready!

    I tell everyone that if God came today whooppeee!! I can praise Him forever and have no worries, no hard work, and be in great health! My motto is bring it on Jesus!

  4. Wow Christine…a moving story. What a blessing to know we have an eternal home. There are certainly times when I don’t feel I belong here, in these times. I’m not ready to go yet, but I take great heart knowing He died for my citizenship in my real home.
