I am a Christian family man, Lay Pastor and writer from Deep East Texas. I love life, and I enjoy working with young people. I have published two books; "A Small Mind Among Tall Trees" and "God If You Are Not Too Busy, Can You Give Me a Hand". If you want to obtain a copy drop me an e-mail or go to or barnesand . I have been a salesman, cowman and athlete in my past. I still have a strong sense of humor and am not afraid to use it.

Romans 8:22-25

Relax, Read and Reflect.
Prayer- Lord, Open our hearts and open our minds and help us learn. Go-Fight-Win. Amen.
22We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. 24For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? 25But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.

One of the really neat things of our lives in heaven will be that things will be perfect. Perfect bodies, perfect humor, perfect love. This is a promise of God. Our earthly creation is imperfect, but heaven will be perfect.
We trust our parents, even when some of the promises they make may not come true. As a parent, I understand the pain that both parties can feel when a parent lets down their children. God never makes a promise He can't keep, and his promises of eternity with Him are great. Our future is wonderful, but still we must wait patiently.

Prayer- Lord, Thank you for the promise of heaven. Help us live our lives on earth to the expectations and the patience You desire. Go-Fight-Win. Amen.
