Friends from Green Bay

Adam and Jill's friends from Green Bay came down for the week. Today Adam and Jason went to a movie while Jill and Andrea went shopping. Allen and I watched the 4 girls. What fun they had swimming - watch little Anna! She would just fall into the water and we'd run to rescue her but she would just turn herself right up and keep going. She did this over and over. Quite nerve wracking for us but she was having a blast!

Then the girls played in the "house" under the stairs. Lauren was confused with my old fashioned kitchen set since it didn't have a microwave. Just a regular oven, sink and frig. All made of wood. I bought it years ago at a craft fair. All 3 pieces for $100. Hand made. The family thought I was silly. The kids were in junior high and high school at the time, but I was looking ahead to the future when I would have grand kids that would love it!

In the same way, we look forward to that day, when we will be with Christ. We prepare for it and look forward to it with anticipation!

2 peter 3:8-14
8 But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. 9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.11 Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives 12 as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. 13 But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness. 14 So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him." NASB
