God has planted eternity in the heart (Ecclesiastes 3:11 NLT).


I loved drama in junior high school. I enjoyed being in several plays at North Middle School in Everett, Washington. Before performing for the school or parents, we would always have a dress rehearsal; an evening to work out the bugs, review our lines, get our timing down, smooth out the transitions, and pull all the parts together.


This life is a dress rehearsal; it is not the real thing. This is just the staging area, the warm-up lap. This life is just pre-school to the real thing.
