To Prepare a Place

My mother died when I was only 28 years old.

Many memories of her live on in my heart.

She tried to make sure she read the Bible every single day.

Most of the time, when I was a child, she would read it out loud to me.

When she came to a passage that she didn’t understand, she would just say so.

Sometimes, my mother displayed a lot of understanding.

One memory I have is of a story she used to tell.

At a time before I was born, she was talking with one of my cousins, who was a child.

He wanted to talk to her about Heaven.

He asked her if he could have a pony in Heaven.

Her answer seems wise to me, even today.

She told him that if having a pony was what it would take to make him happy, then God would give him a pony in Heaven.

Going further with this thought, I personally believe that there will not be anyone in Heaven who is unhappy.

After all, we will be with Jesus who died to purchase our place there.

Our loved ones who followed Jesus on Earth will be with us.

With overflowing hearts, we will be filled with gratitude and praise in His presence.

Jesus also tells us in John 14:2 that,

“In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.”

Jesus is preparing a place for us!

For you.

For me.

But what if we would really like to have a pony for eternity?

If that would bring great joy to our hearts, I think God might just give us one…..
