We celebrated our 30th anniversary a couple of weeks ago. We headed to the mountains and took the scenic route. There was no hurry to get there, and the ride was pleasant.
As we got closer to the Peaks of Otter, we could see the twin peaks. Badona took pictures of them from the car. The view was magnificent even though the fall leaves had faded. The bare branches of the trees silhouetted against the bright blue sky were a pretty sight. The view of the small lake at Peaks of Otter was pleasant to the eyes with the mountain peak behind it. The lodge and restaurant looked good from the outside, but the prices inside seemed out of reason to me. A T-shirt in the gift shop was priced at $40! Everything was overpriced. All the beautiful surroundings pulled you to a place that was not healthy for budget-conscious people.
Heaven will be even more beautiful and so will the New Earth. And Jesus has already paid the price. We will be able to enjoy all of it! See John 14:1-3.
Revelation 21 speaks of everything made new. No more sin, pain, death, and sickness. Then it describes the city. We have never seen anything like it.
We did enjoy a picnic at Peaks of Otter. It was nice, but those who accept Jesus as their personal Savior will be able to have more than just a picnic in heaven and the New Earth!
The Lord did bless us with a fantastic view from our hotel window in Bedford!
