Jim and I love the beach and have been planning for some time to come to one of our favorite beaches for our 42nd wedding anniversary. We almost didn't get to come due to him being sick. But just days before we were to leave he recovered and we were so excited that this trip did not have to be cancelled. We drove all day Sat. It took almost 11 hours to get here and we were so happy we arrived before sunset. As soon as we got our suitcases in the condo we hurried out the door to the beach. I am so glad I caught this picture of Jim rejoicing over being at the beach!
"We made it!" He shouts!
Today as I was thinking about us being here, the beauty of this beach and how excited we were when we finally arrived, I thought about heaven. What is it going to be like when we finally get there? Will we run to Jesus with arms stretched wide open? Will we have a huge smile because we are with the One we love? I picture my entrance in that way. I see me running and hugging Jesus! As I look over his shoulder I see all my loved ones waiting for me. The first one I 'see' is my sweet daughter Amy who has been with the Lord for almost 13 yr. and then all my much loved family and friends!
I think I just might want to shout "I made it!"
