My Privacy Fence

I was sitting on my porch the other day admiring our new privacy fence that I had just finished staining.  It was absolutely glowing in the sunlight.  I was proud. 

The thought struck me that someday that fence would not even exist.  Someday it will mean so little to me that it will almost be like it never existed at all.  Anyway where we’ll be, the fence, the house and all of it won’t matter.  I’m in no particular hurry to get there but I am looking forward to that day.

About Angus Lewis

My wife and I lived our whole lives in Arkansas until ten years ago. We moved to the Kansas City area in 2011 (a job change). That was the reason for the 'From a Far Country' title. Our children and grandchildren were in Arkansas. Six months ago we sold our house and bought one in Sherwood, Arkansas and my wife moved back down here. Two weeks ago I retired and moved back too. (I'm probably going to try to find something part time to keep me out of trouble.) So maybe the 'From a Far Country' title is not so much of a fit anymore. But I think I'll stick with it. I'm still not home. Not yet. The Bible says we are all strangers and pilgrims here. Our real home is with God and some day we'll be there. We'll be home.
