The sight of migrating Canada Geese always amazes me.  They all seem to know the time they are supposed to leave and they also seem to know how to get to their destination, their home.  They get focused and nothing seems to stop them.  Storms may blow, snow, cold weather, no matter the hinderance, they are able to find their way back to the home they left months earlier.

    As Christians, we too know where our home is and how to get there.  We too need to keep our focus on that destination and not let anything divert us.  There is an old hymn that starts, “This world is not my home, I’m just a passin’ through”.  This earth is not our home.  Heaven is the home, this life is just the journey.  That does not mean we just sit here and wait to go home.  While here we must work for Him, share the Good News of the salvation of Christ and do what we can to bring heaven down to earth: the perfect health of heaven, the perfect peace, the perfect joy, all need to be brought down here to earth.
