I Love Gates!

I Love Gates!

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.” Matthew 7:13

I Love Gates!

The morning this photo was taken.. I pushed the button on the remote and I heard a loud "beep" instead of the predictable hum of the mechanism.  

First thought was - "Okay, I'll stay home and call it a day!".. There is something comforting about having a gate between me and the world (I think my introvert is showing.. :)

Never in a million years did it occur to me that I could have a remote gate - how cool is this!? God is good! 

In the Bible, gate has many meanings.  My favorite is in John Chapter 10, Jesus uses the word "gate" in multiple ways. Check it out..

My favorite is in verse 9 when Jesus refers to himself as the "gate."  "Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved. They will come and go freely and will find good pastures."

Today is Nov 20th and the gate is still in need of repair.  And I'm okay with that. Every time I get out of the car, or walk up there to open or close it, I'm reminded how blessed I am to even have one - thank you Jesus!
