Already ready

"Blessed are those servants whom the master finds vigilant on his arrival."
Luke 12:37
This always reminds me of the funny bumper sticker: "Jesus is coming! Look busy!"  Jesus reminds us in this Gospel, that we may not have the luxury of time to get it right down here on earth.  I rarely walk out of a funeral that I don't think, "Wow...good thing I have time left! I better get busy!" But we don't know when our time ends.  On Pray-As-You-Go this morning, they had a great suggestion.  What if we get ready for God coming by recognizing that God is already here? If we can look for signs of God's presence in our everyday lives we can live in a state of "already readiness" because we aren't waiting for anyone.  God is already here. Let's look around us all day today and note the presence of God; maybe in nature, or in the beautiful smiling face of the grocery store cashier or in the eyes of a child. Jesus isn't "coming." Jesus is already here!  Love, heidi
