The Trip

So, John Denver comes to mind, and his song, "I'm leaving on a jet plane." I'm not actually leaving on a jet plane, but I am leaving in my Land Rover! And, to me, I'd much rather go on a road trip in my Land Rover than on a jet plane. As a child, my mother, brother and I took a trip to California and my brother had just bought a John Denver tape. We listened to that tape the entire way, or at least it seemed like it. "Sunshine on my shoulders, makes me happy." And, "Follow me." I can recall some of the California scenery from that trip and in the back of my mind, John Denver is singing. :-)
Today I am off on a shorter trip. I'll be seeing my son and daughter in-law tonight for dinner. And, a great friend will be traveling with me. I have apples, bananas and granola bars. My Land Rover is full of gas, and I even cleaned out the garbage, produced by my children. I cleaned all the nose prints off the window, courtesy of my dog, and got the oil changed.
What do I do to prepare myself for the trip to heaven? Each day, I am closer to being there in person. No longer a visitor here on earth, but living with my Father. Each day, He is cleaning me, growing me, bringing me into a state of reality with Him. I like knowing this. He is traveling along with me, and it's a good thing.
Happy journeys to everyone today. And, Jesus, Say That Again to me. Heaven is the destination!
