Exciting Times Are Coming

*****New Years!

FALL – apples, leaves changing, cooler weather, pumpkins, etc.

FOOTBALL – Alabama (Sorry…we are from Alabama), or Tennessee, or Florida
(Sorry…our son-in-law is a Gator fan), etc.

THANKSGIVING – pies, turkey, dressing, giving thanks, family, friends, etc.

CHRISTMAS – Birth of Christ, baking, decorations, presents, cards, lights, trees, family, friends, etc.

NEW YEARSout with the old and in with the new; a time to wipe the slate clean and start over; the ball dropping; a new beginning…

WEDDING Cody and Melanie’s “Big Day”; the beginning of their lives together; the completion of our children – two girls and two boys (not including future grandchildren. ), etc.

All of these are important events and all deserve all of the careful planning, preparing and anticipating AND there is nothing wrong with it………………however, wouldn’t it be even greater if we got as excited for the second coming of our Lord? We say we are excited. We say we are preparing. We say we are anticipating…..but are we? Sometimes our actions prove differently.

Let’s try to make it our goal to get as EXCITED with ANTICIPATION for our ETERNAL FUTURE as we do when we are making plans for our earthly future.
