Devotions from Judy’s heart

This morning when I was going to start the fire in the woodstove, the window of it was black with soot. I couldn’t see if there were any coals inside or rather couldn’t see inside at all. But after I cleaned the window, everything was clear and I could see the live coals. I thought of how there is a veil between our life here on earth and our eternal home. Our home above is very real but not seen because of the veil that separates us, like the blackened glass.  One day the veil will be removed and we will see clearly His glory.  II Cor 3:18 says, “And we all, with unveiled face, beholding glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another.”  I think of my dad and how thin the veil seems between his life here on earth and heaven that awaits him. When the veil is lifted he will be at Home at last!  I wonder if he will spend Christmas with mom.
