Face to Face
It was great having
the girls home last week! Even though we talk on the phone every now and then, it is different seeing them face to face.
I remember being at
the airport last Tuesday waiting for Chelsey and Robert to arrive. When they announced that the plane had landed, I began watching people as they walked down the hallway. It's funny, but I couldn't
describe any of the many faces I saw, but once I saw the one I was looking for, well, you know, it does something in your heart!
Then, around 11:30
that night, we heard a car pull into the drive and all rushed downstairs. It was dark, but I still remember seeing Tashia's face as she came around the vehicle. It warms you.
The reason I'm
thinking about all of this is that yesterday I saw a post on Face Book from a young lady I knew from the church in Dallas. Her mother had just passed away and in her post she said, "Mom got to see
Jesus' face this morning." Reading those words sent a warm feeling through my heart. Seeing Jesus' face, feeling his embrace, knowing that you are home. What can be more wonderful than
says, “Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city. On
each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be
any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads.”
Notice that last
line: They will see his face, and his name will be on their
foreheads. It will be a homecoming like never before!
Think about it.
