This morning my sweetie and I went for a morning walk. It is an absolutely beautiful and gorgeous day out there. The two of us decided to get up and move more so these old bodies will be a little healthier and won't ache so much in the mornings. We walked along talking and taking in all the beautiful flowers in the yards we passed. We even commented on one yard where the sprinklers where evidently stuck in the on position as they were on when we first went by the house and still on as we were heading home. This brings me to my scripture for today.
Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning. Mark 13:35
Just as we need to keep our bodies tuned up we also need to keep our souls tuned up. The healthier our bodies are the less doctor's visits we will make. By keeping our souls tuned up we will be ready when Christ returns to take us home and that is one homecoming I definitely don't want to miss.

It may be at morn, when the day is awaking,
When sunlight through darkness and shadow is breaking
That Jesus will come in the fullness of glory
To receive from the world "His own."
O Lord Jesus, how long, how long
Ere we shout the glad song,
Christ returneth! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! Amen. Hallelujah! Amen.
