Getting Ready for a Road Trip
In a few weeks I will be driving with my family to Louisiana. Geaux Saints!!! I have been asked to do a wedding for a young lady in the church in Amite. I met her (she was 2!) and her family in 1991 and we have kept in touch for a long time. Needless to say that I am excited about going back to Louisiana to see old friends and let me kids see where we lived for a while. This kind of anticipation is a good thing, is this how it is supposed to be for Christians?
I know that am going to be with Jesus in Heaven one day, but sometimes it is hard to get excited about that fact. I forget about how soon that could be, and most times I am so busy with the stuff around me. I have been doing some thinking. Maybe I should begin to clear out the clutter and start getting ready for this trip to Heaven. I want to be anticipating Heaven as much as I anticipate this road trip. I have a lot more to do before I am ready for this trip down south, but I am ready for Heaven. How about you?
