Looking forward with excited eyes to Heaven’s treasures

“In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.  You know the way to the place where I am going.” – John 14:2-4.

The church yard was sprinkled with colors. Excitement filled the eyes of the little ones as they prepared to make a run for all the treasures that awaited them. They dashed around from place to place grabbing what seemed like an endless supply of Easter eggs. Each basket overflowed, and each child happily flashed smiles at their parents.
This will be us one day. We will look with excited eyes at the treasures and beauty that Heaven will hold for us. We will have endless supplies of all that we will need. And we will smile happily at our Heavenly Father.
He sent His son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for our sins. But Jesus arose! He lives! And we will live for eternity with them in Heaven!
He is preparing a place for you and me! Jesus already paid for our ticket. Are you ready for the trip?

Join us on April 27 for Bright Sunday followed by a potluck luncheon after worship. It’s a day full of laughter and fun as we celebrate the biggest prank that God pulled on the Devil. Jesus arose from the dead! Come dressed in your fifties styles, bright colors, or just come as you are!
