As Elijah and Moses were leaving Jesus, Peter said to him, “Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” (He did not know what he was saying.) - Luke 9:33
We would all love to be with you and those heavenly saints on that holy mountain. Sometimes our earthly lives seem so mundane and even cruel. But to experience a taste of heaven once in a while, that would be grand. I get what Peter was thinking. But you had to finish your earthly trek. We have to finish ours too. Be with us as we journey across our lives and guide our footsteps by your word. Help us to see where and how you want us to shine for you. We will build a shrine for you in how we live and speak. And we will keep one ear to your word to listen to what you tell us there.

God wants to be listened to more than enshrined and gawked at.
