The Father knocks on my door, seeking a home for his Son.
“Rent is cheap,” I say.
“I don’t want to rent, I want to buy,” says God.
“I think I will,” says God.
“I might let you have a room or two,” I say.
“I like it,” says God. “I’ll take the two rooms. You might decide to give me more someday. I can wait,” says God.
“I’d like to give you more, but it a bit difficult. I need some space for me,” I say.
“I know,” says God, “but I’ll wait; I like what I see.”
“Hmm, maybe I can let you have another room. I really don’t need that much.“
“Thanks,” says God. “I’ll take it. I like what I see.“
“I’d like to give you the whole house, but I’m not sure.“
“Think on it,” says God; “I would not put you out. Your house would be mine and my son would live in it. You’d have more space than you’ve ever had before.“
“But, I don’t understand at all,” I say.
“I know,” says God, “but I can’t tell you about that. You have to discover it for yourself. That can only happen if you let me have the whole house.“
“That’s a bit risky,” I say.
“Yes,” says God, “but try me.“
“I’m not sure. I’ll let you know.“
“I can wait,” says God. “I like what I see.”

Nice. I love the analogy.
Sometimes we find that we thought we gave the whole house to the Father and find that we really held back in some area.
It’s a challenge to not only give the house, but to not hold any rooms back.
Fantastic, you get twice as much out of it when you read it a second time. I like the thought of making “home improvements” once the Son moves in. The upgraded improvement usually reflect the occupant’s character and taste. Maybe some improvements could be to repaint in a color called “Truth Teal”, trimmed with Crown Molding painted in “Passion Purple”. And if the owner allowed, replacing the floor with ceramic tile to give a stronger foundation. What ever the changes may be I’m sure it would increase one’s value and the neighborhood.
Why would the gentlemen rather stay in the city and let their
future wives depart without them. Fetishism involves the use of a nonliving object
or a body part that a person regards as a sexual
object. Our bodies are called “a temple of God” and “a dwelling place for the Holy Spirit. There is a lot of talk about Hoodia. The result was that God became really angry with King Solomon, who was once a beloved, faithful servant of His.
Hello from Phoenix. The videos are AWESOME. Almost feel like we are on pilgrimage with you.We are praying a Rosary daily that Our Lady wraps her Mantle around you to keep you healthy and safe, and that she leads you to a deeper personal encounter with her Son. Wishing you a very Happy and Holy New Year.
Blessings, Jim and Rose King
I like it, Steve… might become part of an upcoming homily…
God bless you, Janet and all your pilgrims..
