Heavenly Bodies...

2 Corinthians 5:1,3 (NLT)
For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands. ... [3] For we will put on heavenly bodies; we will not be spirits without bodies.

- This is a fascinating passage to wonder about. Paul's statement that "we will not be spirits without bodies," contradicts many views people hold regarding our future and what eternal life "looks like."

I love to think about this too. I love to see all the amazingly cool stuff that these vessels of clay are capable of ... As they house our adventuring souls. Pretty cool "tents" ... So complex and versatile. I think this tent thing relates directly to the "mansion" thing. Can't wait to see that next-gen housing. ~ greeting from down South! ~ DeAnn

I love your expression: "next-gen housing" ... yes, I certainly wonder too. Thanks for adding your thoughts!

Spring is struggling to get going here on Vancouver island. I trust you're in full swing over there?
