When I got engaged, I read bridal magazines, surfed the web, and bought a wedding planning book. Two actually. I wanted to be sure my wedding was perfect.
When I was pregnant, I read all the pregnancy books so that I would be prepared for the arrival of my little ones. I wanted to be the best mom I could be.
Throughout my life, I’ve prepared for job interviews, college, vacations, teaching lessons, and even Five Minute Friday posts. Yet, the most important thing I continue to prepare for is eternity.
Although I have read scripture, I totally don’t know what to expect when my time comes to take my last breath here and my first breath in heaven. Nothing on earth is ever quite like we expect, so how can heaven be?
But in all honesty, all that is important is that we are prepared for eternity, that we’ve done our part here (accept Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord) to ensure our names are written in the Book of Life. We should then prepare our families as well, after all don’t we want them to join us in eternity?
