“Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of – throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.”

Yes, it is a beautiful mansion called “Blairsden” in New Jersey. It was part of a tour to raise funds for a children’s hospital. Thanks for visiting and commenting!

This is the Blairsden Mansion in Peapack-Gladstone. It was part of a tour to raise funds for the children’s wing of Morristown Memorial Hospital. I was there last year in May. I have to post about my visit. I never did.
