jesus came in the mailJesus came yesterday! A day earlier than expected!

That’s right…Jesus came in the mail.

When Tim came home from work with this package from Amazon, I got so excited. I grabbed the delivery, and started gallivanting around room-to-room telling each family member, “Jesus came today in the mail!” Of course, they looked at me like I’d lost my mind.

While uncovering the various nativity scenes I decorate with during this Christmas season, I noticed that I have held on to a few way too long. Some were missing a king or two, others had Joseph on a business trip, and Mary must have needed a vacation. (Did I mention that I love nativity scenes? Well…yep, I do.)

It felt sacrilegious discarding the nativity scenes who were missing folks, so until I decide what to do with them, they are stashed away in one container. (Any ideas?) Until that decision is made, I searched, clicked, and ordered a new and complete nativity scene.

Recently, I wrote about how we (I) put Jesus in a Box when we try to play boss of our lives, when God really is.

This time, when Jesus came “in the mail”, and I was all giddy, it made me think about how HE IS COMING again one day. We do not know the time or day or year, but I can’t help but feel thrilled knowing that it will be soon!

“No one knows when that day or time will be. The Son and the angels in heaven don’t know when it will be. Only the Father knows.” Matthew 24:36

How do I know He’s coming back? Because He said so!

“After I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back. Then I will take you with me, so that you can be where I am. John 14:3

Ahhh, True Love!

Are you ready?

If you need to do some “searching”, don’t delay. Let me make this easy for you…He is the only way to get to heaven.

Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. The only way to the Father is through me.” John 14:6

Get excited about Jesus’ coming.

Have a beautiful day.

Blessings to you and yours,

Stephanie
