Ready or Not, Here I Come

“Ready or not, here I come,” yells Daniel from the other room.

Daniel and I engaged in the game of hide and seek last week. I am not exactly easy to hide now days. I have become a much bigger person, and it is not easy to hide. But all three times that I hid, Daniel could not find me. I was a genius.

It will not be like that when the Lord returns. We will not be able to hide from Him. He will not be outsmarted. He can see all. He hears all. He has said He will return, ready or not! He tells us to be ready. So how do we make ourselves ready? Just as a bride makes herself ready for the day that she has dreamed of all her life, so must we make ourselves ready for the coming King.

How does she make herself ready? Well I call them beauty treatments. On your wedding day, what kind of beauty treatments did you have?

Oh bummer I have to STOP now, my 5 minutes are up.

But hey there are 12 beauty treatments in my book that you will help make you ready for the day our Bridegroom returns for His Bride.


Now for Daniel’s Five Minute Friday:

(Remember he is only 10, so please excuse his grammar. We are working on it. I am just glad that he wants to participate)

One time I was training for a big event and I was not ready so I trained and I trained but the more i tried to get  ready the worst every thing got. one time i was trying to do a push up-but i am really weak and one time at lunch i  was practicing for the bean bag toss with a lunch tray and i tripped over my shoe lase and I got a bunch of mash potatoes on the lunch lady, she looked like a yeti. Then finally  i had to go to the big event the first event was the running in the lake of mud i love mud and I dashed though the mud.  did i really win? looks I’m ready for this. I beat the crap out the dude in bean bag toss woo hoo! On the push up event i was really scared because i am really weak my highest i have done is three. don don don don and i stepped up to the plate and 1, 2, 3 oh, come on do another push up and 4. Victory  I knew I was ready.

One Response to Ready or Not, Here I Come

  1. You and I had similar thoughts today, Jodie. Yes, he will see us even if we want to hide when I returns. I’m grateful that at this point in my life, I am ready. That wasn’t always the case, for sure. I love that you share your son’s FMF too! So much fun to read each of your takes on it. 🙂
