He'll Soon Be Back...

In less than an hour my youngest son will be boarding an airplane in China and starting his journey back home after eighteen days of being gone. We are all excited and anxious to see him again. As a mother, I can't wait to give him a big hug as a welcome home.

While he has been gone we have had some communication. We have been able to view some photos as well as read some blog entries about what they have been doing. We even were surprised by an email earlier this week from him.

I think about how excited and anxious we are to meet his flight tomorrow evening at 11:58 PM and I can't help but think about my Heavenly Father as well. I know that He eagerly desires for each of us to choose to follow Him. He is looking toward the time when we come home as well - both by becoming a part of His family and also as Christians when He calls us to our Heavenly home.

As I write this with the anticipation of soon seeing my son, I want to ask you if you know where you are headed. Are you assured of having a personal relationship with God and knowing that you are His? If not, you can change that by praying and asking God to forgive you of your sins. Tell Him you desire to be a part of His family and desire to follow Him. If you pray this, please contact me and let me know. I would love to pray for you as well.

I praise God for the time that my son has been in China because I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it was God's will for him to be there. I look forward to hearing how God spoke to him while he was there and what things he has learned. I can't wait to give him a hug tomorrow evening. Your Heavenly Father is waiting to hug you as well.

Hope to hear more about your son's mission trip to China. That was really a long way to go for one so young! I hope you have gotten a lot of hugs from him by today! :) Mississippi
