days until we board the plane for Israel!

My wife taught me an important lesson in how to take a vacation.
It’s no secret, I don’t mind “winging it” here and there. But when it comes to a vacation, there are many reasons to plan ahead. Not the least of which is to anticipate.
When we look out ahead and start counting, we anticipate.
I anticipate finishing a degree program I’m in.
I anticipate going to Israel.
I anticipate our church gathering at Pepsi Amphitheater for our 25th anniversary.
And, I anticipate gathering with our church family, each and every Sunday. Like we’ve been doing for 25 years.
What do you anticipate?
How does anticipating, counting down the days, help you be ready?
What are you looking forward to?
Here’s one thing I’m looking forward to more than anything else…
For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.
Therefore comfort one another with these words.
