“I’m going to live forever, probably in a dog house.” ~the priest

I've been wondering about my vocabulary.  Words are meant to communicate.  Sometimes I wonder how many Words have lost their power.  I stumbled on this thought the other day when I used the Word eternal life.  That is strong, but when I used the phrase, "Hey bud.  Do you want to live forever?"  The thought was EXPLOSIVE.  I even questioned whether I believed it.  

I mean I believe in eternal life, because that is what I bought into when I chose to walk with Jesus as a life style.  But when I translate the thought to I will live forever,  I wonder, "REALLY?" 

My friend from Barbados says, "Robert: It's unimaginable, not that it doesn't make any sense… ur finite mind will explode trying to understand it :)" and goes on to say, "You actually are a spirit living in a body… so u will live for ever regardless the question is WHERE :)

I think you will enjoy thoughts from the island and yes I am going to live forever, eternally with my friend Jesus…

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".
