1 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God[a]; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”
Father, prepare a great place for Coach Lester Farr….
…..a brand new, stained hardwood court, 84×50 feet to be exact, with freshly painted lines
….a new orange Wilson Jet fresh out of the box with a can of Cramer Firm Grip
…an arena bathed in Light
….two worthy teams for competition, Dad’s team slightly less talented but great listeners, full of fight and determination like their coach, with a penchant for the fast break
….plenty of sticks of wrigley’s spearmint gum for energy
….the pleasant aroma of boiling hot dogs and freshly brewed coffee
…a new suit with a print tie for his new body, which is free from pain and full of energy
… his wife Allene at the scorers table, three fingers in the air when a player gets in foul trouble
….new eyeglasses, that he doesn’t need, but to push up his nose against his forehead after his well-scouted opponent scores an infrequent field goal
…..two officials that he would take at home or on the road
….a lively contingent of fans backing and encouraging his team
I am going there to prepare a place for you. John 14:2
Father, Prepare a place this wonderful and more for Coach Farr, your good and faithful servant, who touched so many young people in his life.
