So, by my figuring, spring must be just around the corner.  No really, we’ve had more winter, this winter, then we had last winter and winter has only been here for a week.  So by the time we had this much winter last winter, winter was almost over and spring was almost here.  You still with me?  So put away your snow blowers and pull out your lawnmowers.  If only it worked that way.
In case you don’t know me that well, I really dislike winter; loathe might be a better word and so I look forward to spring with great longing, it’s less than 12 weeks away.
I remember when I looked for the return of Christ with that type of longing and I wonder when and why that changed.  This time of year we celebrate the first coming of Christ and as believers we are told that He will return and even though it might not be tomorrow, it might be.  Are you looking forward to His return?  Or would it put a crimp in your plans?
So this Christmas, as we look back at what His first coming meant, perhaps it would be wise to look ahead and consider what His return will mean for you.    Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
