“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am."- John 14:1-3

Dear Jesus, how amazingly thoughtful of you to comfort our hearts on the night before you would be tortured and die.  I trust you. I think of how awesome it will be to live in your Father's house with you and all the saints.  I wonder what it is like there for my loved ones who have crossed over to glory.  Just thinking about all this fills up my emotional cup.  I have a place waiting for me near them. What impact can any earthly sorrow have when it all ends with me living forever with you and them?  I will spend today as an optimist. Your promise is worthy of my plan to make it a good day.  AMEN

We can smile like a great lotto winner today.  In Christ we have hit the jackpot!
