I am expecting my third child anytime now. I am still working, but I’m motivated to make sure everything is in order before I leave so that if I go into labour and am not at school the next morning my replacement can step in and take over the class smoothly. Living in this state of expectation has made me be a more organized and responsible teacher.

                We are all expecting… Jesus to return. And, the best thing we can do is to live in a state of expectation. “And all who have this eager expectation will keep themselves pure, just as he is pure.” 1 John 3:3. Some people are expecting the end of the world to be tomorrow May 21, 2011 claiming that it is “Biblically based”, but the Bible contradicts this by saying that ‘no one will know the time or the hour’. Matthew 24:44 “You also must be ready all the time, for the Son of Man will come when least expected.”

                You are expecting or should be, live a purer life with that in mind.
