I tell you the truth, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.
John 16 : 23-24 

I am long overdue to write.  
I am long overdue on a lot of things.
I  was laying on the floor trying to do some longoverdue planks and non crunch crunches when I saw some longoverdue hairballs inbetween the loveseat and endtable.
Reminds me of something/someone else that wasn't longoverdue but necessarily long expected.
The reason for joy.

Come thou long-expected Jesus, 
Born to set Thy people free; 
From our fears and sins release us, 
Let us find our rest in Thee. 
Israel's strength and consolation, 
Hope of all the earth Thou art; 
Dear Desire of every nation, 
Joy of every longing heart. 

Born Thy people to deliver, 
Born a Child and yet a King. 
Born to reign in us for ever, 
Now Thy gracious kingdom bring. 
By Thine own eternal Spirit 
Rule in all our hearts alone; 
By Thine all-sufficient merit 
Raise us to Thy glorious throne.
