Immediately upon their arrival, no greetings required, all five, two sets of twins 10 & 8 and my 5 year old, were lined up on the sofa, devices in hand. MINECRAFT. If you have kids you undoubtedly know Minecraft. While at times I need to limit the hours logged on this game, for the most part, I'm ok with it. The resourcefulness and creativity that is being developed is by far better than killing and beating things up.
So, I listen to them mining and building and requesting to enter each others worlds. And I'm thinking, " How cool to just go from my world into someone else's for a bit, and then leave again." Of course this spawned thoughts of, "Wow, would I, given the opportunity, leave my little world for a new one? It could be better, after all?" Who doesn't think that on occasion?!
Then, I am reminded of a statement I heard several years ago: Bloom where you are planted.It stuck with me. I imagined a flower in all it's little beauty absorbing the nutrients from the soil, drinking in the moisture, soaking up the sun and thriving; never needing to move. Everything required for life right there where it was planted.
So no, I will not go to another world. I've got just what I need here, thanks to my amazing God who has blessed me richly, and who promises me an eternal move to HIS world in the end. I'm good. :)
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4
