In my father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. (John 14:2)

Father, we long for that day when we are received into Jesus’ open arms.
And where I go you know, and the way you know.” (John 14:4)

Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going, and how can we know the way?” (John 14:5)
