"childhood feeling"

Hi Doves!
I have visited this site for over 4 years every day and thank you all for your studies and encouragement!
I wanted to share that when I was a child (about 10 or 11) I also felt that I would never die, but that Jesus would return before that time.... like around my mid 50s or so...  I had no reason to believe this.  My dad was a pastor in the LCMS and we didn't believe in the rapture... in fact, I had no idea there even was such a thing.  I had very little knowledge of the book of Revelation and we didn't focus on the end times.  I have always remembered that feeling when I was younger and have been growing in anticipation.  October 21 was my 53rd birthday! Yay!
