Do you ever find yourself thinking: "If only Jesus would come today." I know I have more than once. When life get's us down we often think about hiding and running away. It's a way to preserve our sanity and a way to escape our present situations. One day Jesus will return and for all eternity we will be in His presence! Waiting on eternity feels like an eternity in these bodies filled with sin, selfish-desires, pain, hurt, and pride. It becomes a heavy load if we are not careful to keep a balanced day. I try not to over do it and the best way for me is to just focus on one small task at a time, making a list, and with plenty of wiggle room for play and relaxation with my two boys who are both under 4. Life can be loved and lived with eternity in mind and that's the best thing we have to look forward to. Praise God! For all eternity is not today, but today is all we have to worry about and enjoy, thank God! Be encouraged today my friends! Jesus loves you!!

Called to Love
great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be
called children of God!” 1 John 3a
is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son
into the world that we might live through him. This is love; not that
we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning
sacrifice for our sins. Dear
friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No
one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us
and his love is made complete in us. We
know that we live in him and he in us, because he has given us of his
Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son
to be the Saviour of the world. If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is
the Son of God, God lives in him and he in God. And so we know and
rely on the love God has for us. God
is love. Whoever
lives in love lives in God, and God in him. In this way, love is made
complete among us so that we will have confidence on the…
