A View from the Other Side

I love that scene in the movie Pleasantville where Toby McGuire and Reese Witherspoon suddenly realize that they are in the television program they were watching just a few minutes before. It is an interesting concept that boggles their minds. Well guess what? I am going to be living that scene in the next forty eight hours.

Lori and I have been talking to our daughter Sarah on our computer through a free program called Skype. Every few days we get on the computer and have a video conference. For the last six weeks we have only been able to see her through the video screen. It is almost as if she is on another planet or in a strange way, on television. Well the next time I talk to Lori, on Wednesday night, I am going to be talking to her from the television screen because I will be with Sarah. I will have entered Sarah's world.

It is fun to do the mental gymnastics with this but what strikes me as even more amazing is what God actually did 2,000 years ago. He came from heaven above and entered our world, walked with us and looked to God in the same way we do. It is mind boggling but I thank God that he came entered our world and is here to stay forever.

God bless! I'll talk to you next from the other side of the world.
