Savoring the Rest to Come

Guess what is coming up?  SPRING BREAK!!!  Whoo hoo!!!  And I get to stay home with my babies.  I have some plans but really, I just want to savor the time.  It's like money you know you are going to put in the bank but for a moment, you let yourself make plans with it.  In my mind, I make plans but the only thing that I really want is the opportunity to catch up on rest.  

Anticipation, I'm anticipating a little rest and this is what has me excited and giddy.  This puts me in mind of my eschatological view.   In light of the pandemic that is the Corona Virus, we are faced with our mortality.  I will tell you that I am not afraid.  I'm not afraid for myself or for my children.  I am thinking with the lens of going home.  There is every possibility that I am wrong in my thinking but God will come for His people.  If we die before this then we will go home to be with Him.  

In both cases, Spring Break, death, I am savoring.  This is the part that is the best.  It is waiting for what is coming.  I don't know where you are and what you are hoping for but there is peace in the savoring.  Take my word for it.  Praise God!!
