Anna's post made me think yesterday - WHY are we (collectively) busting our butts cleaning and stuff, IF we're not gonna be here after the Fall Feasts?

So...while I was painting the trim in the Music/Game room (why bother? Because...once the furniture is back in place, you won't SEE any of the baseboards, so.....why? :sigh:) I got to thinking. We're looking forward to the Wedding Feast, yes? Well...what IF all this hustle and bustle is getting us Spiritually ready to "host" the reception?

I mean......Messiah went to prepare a place for us, right? So...why are we worried about our physical homes? He'll do a much better job than we puny humans could *ever* do....but. TorahClass talks about the Duality of Reality....so what IF all my painting and cleaning and purging is getting my Spiritual house in order, as well as my physical?

I should also confess that I spent a few minutes wondering if this was like some of the moral tales I read....you know, I get to pick a violin for someone I really don't like that much, so I pick the lesser of the 2, only to find out that I was really picking one for *me* - that sort of thing. I spent a good 30 minutes contemplating that my painting here was putting paint on the walls of my Heavenly home...but I rapidly dismissed that, because I don't think He would let me touch His paintbox. :lol: Besides, He has a MUCH wider selection of colors than we do here - nevermind me, I'm just rambling now. :lol:

Anyway....the Duality of Reality makes sense.....because otherwise, all this cleaning and tidying and renewing just doesn't make sense. Unless we're gonna be here for a while longer - but it STILL doesn't make sense, because why now? (And, while I still wonder about the whole Rapture-as-the-church-teaches-it thing, I'm hoping that it's something they DID get right for once. Because....I don't really wanna be here for what's coming. And if I am here.....fresh paint will be the LEAST of my worries!)(Even if I am totally digging the new color scheme - my house makes me insanely happy right now, even as messy as it currently is, because the colors are just...happy.)

Still have a lot of unconnected thoughts rumbling around, but I have work-work to do before we start school. Kids are cleaning out the kidding area of the barn - the bucklings were in it last Saturday, and made a bit of a mess.

I think it's more along the lines of nesting. We know something is coming, like the bridesmaids with oil in their lamps, but we need something to help us get thru the waiting/excitement as we're wound up.
