A Juicy Piece of Fruit

Sometimes, in being a parent, you feel like you've planted, watered, weeded, and worked for days and days on end.  Then, once in a while, you see a massive piece of tasty, juicy fruit hanging from the branches, and it makes all that work worthwhile.

My oldest son's class was discussing how much they were excited for Jesus to return and have the Resurrection.  They were excited about the giant feast and party with Jesus, but most of them were upset; "Why does it have to take so long?  I wish it was the Resurrection right now!"  My son told me that he addressed his friends by saying, "There are so many people in the world, and so many of them are Christians.  It must take God a long time to set such a big table!"
