We are to work while we wait for the rapture.
A gardener for a large estate in northern Italy was conducting a visitor through the castle & the beautiful, well-groomed grounds. As the visitor had lunch with the gardener & his wife, he commended them for the beautiful way they were keeping the gardens. He asked, “By the way, when was the last time the owner was here?
“About ten years ago.” The gardener replied.
The visitor asked, “Then why do you keep the gardens in such an immaculate, lovely manner?”
The gardener replied, “Because I’m expecting him to return.”
“Is he coming next week?”
The gardener replied, “I don’t know when he is coming, but I am expecting him today.”
