Not Yet Home

Our Father refreshes us on the journey with some pleasant inns, but will not encourage us to mistake them for home.

At present we are on the outside of the world, the wrong side of the door.

We discern the freshness and purity of morning, but they do not make us fresh and pure. 
We cannot mingle with the splendours we see. But all the leaves of the New Testament are rustling with the rumour that it will not always be so. 
Some day, God willing, we shall get in.
- CS Lewis
