A couple days ago my husband and I went to our youngest son’s workplace for a small tour. He works at a high technology job and has many exciting opportunities of travel and adventure. While we were there, he gave us a trip in the virtual reality world. I put on this huge mask/headset and a controller in each hand. With one of the hands I could transport myself to any area that was around me. I first went to the Nativity church in Jerusalem, to the birthplace of Jesus. I was in awe! I was standing before that holy, protected spot, in a world that was so real, you felt you were actually there! I saw the donkey hooks still in the stone wall where they tied their donkeys in the stable. I saw a stone where it is said, Mary sat and nursed Jesus! It was surreal. I walked around looking up at the beautiful church ceiling and the walls of beauty that surrounded this precious area.
I’ve always dreamed of seeing the land Jesus walked and the places He ministered. Seeing the actual area where He was born was amazing! I transported myself with the controller to other areas surrounding this one spot and saw the most beautiful church I’ve ever seen yet kept going back to the precious stable where my Lord came into this world. Of course we can’t be 100% sure that was exact spot He was born, but those that researched and uncovered it will vouch that it is, as some of the actual surroundings are still there, which support that theory. Either way, it was an awesome experience and my soul was stirred, reminding me that this Jesus is the Jesus I love and serve. This Jesus walks with me every day, and this Jesus will one day look into my eyes as I gaze upon His face, and I will know, This is not just virtual reality, this is truly Home.
