Do you ever feel a big let-down after an event?
Think of all the work we do getting ready for Christmas. Gift-opening and Christmas dinner can be done in a matter of moments after weeks of preparation.
It kind of makes you feel blue. No more searching for just that right gift. No more company enjoying the morsels of delicacies that you slaved in the kitchen to prepare.
And then there are the lifetime events that come and pass us by.
The birth of your babies, the day they start school, and then that dreaded day, the day after they leave home.
What does one do now?
I'm glad that God thinks Jeremiah 29:11 thoughts towards me. I have an expected end. I still have a future and a hope.
Nowhere in the Bible have I found where it talks about retirement. I believe after every bend in the road, there is a future waiting for me.
There is an after life for empty nesters!
