The Anticipation

Easter is just a few days away. I've been thinking about it a lot and anticipating what the day will look like.  We are having a big celebration with friends and family. Big meal, big hunt, big day! We are celebrating our freedom in Jesus, celebrating the gift of life, celebrating HIS LIFE. It's all about life, not death, because He conquered death on the cross. He was in the tomb, but He is there no longer. I will choose to rejoice over this miracle.
And now, every day that I live and breathe is a gift from my God.
I like to think of what it must have been like that morning of the resurrection. The anticipation of God, knowing that His Son was going to raise from the dead. The anticipation of knowing that He was coming home.
Just like He feels now about me.  I will be going home to Him someday. I will leave the bleak of earth, and be transported into HIS glory. I'm anticipating that to be a great trip!
Say That Again, Sweet Jesus, You are coming, You are alive, You have risen!
