My husband's friend, Jan Janura, has two wonderful yellow Labrador retrievers, Star and Babe.  

Hi I'm Joni Eareckson Tada, and my husband's friend, Jan Janura, has two wonderful yellow Labrador retrievers, Star and Babe.  Ken was telling me about the recent hunting trip he went on with Jan, and as soon as those two dogs saw the Jeep packed up with camping gear, oh my goodness – it was all they could do to restrain those two Labrador retrievers. Eager, happy dogs, they were! They couldn't wait to get where they knew they were heading. And I ask, are we at eager to get where we are heading?  Philippians chapter 3 tells us that we are citizens of heaven and, as such, we wait eagerly for a Savior from golden land.  I love that adverb, eagerly.  We should be straining at the leash.  So today, friend, get excited about going where you’re heading – heaven is really that wonderful and just five minutes there will be worth every tear on earth you have ever cried.  Get eager!
