Do you send postcards home to family and friends while on vacation? The limited amount of space rules out lengthy communication. Many simply scribble the cliché, Wish you were here! The recipient is more interested in the picture on the other side. They’ll wait to hear the details after you return home. Do we really wish they were there? If we love them, and we’re really enjoying our vacation the expression comes from the heart.
Those who placed their life in the hands of Christ and died are now in the ultimate paradise. There are no more deadlines, ailments, heartaches or tears. Unlike a vacation that must come to an end, they will never leave. Each day there are new adventures, perfect rest, and joys beyond measure. “But it is just as the Scriptures say, What God has planned for people who love him is more than eyes have seen or ears have heard. It has never even entered our minds (1 Corinthians 2:9 CEV)!” If they could send a message special delivery it would read, Wish you were here!
