The thoughts and plans associated with a vacation or holiday weekend awaken our eternal desires.

As we make plans for everything to be better than everyday life, we are reaching for a little bit of heaven.

In this process, the limited ways that we understand God in our daily lives open up to new cravings and possibilities. And bring us new hope for an eternity of exploration, passion, and discovery.

"How amiable are thy tabernacles, O Lord of hosts!

My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the Lord:

my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God."

Psalm 84:1-2 KJV
