Here they come! There was whooping and hollering and clapping.
The paperwork to get Nate home took a long time. Very long. Too long for this family. They had his picture for over a year.
But now he is home!! And we rejoice!
Welcome home Nate!!
I was reflecting on Nate's arrival and thinking that it sort of reflects when we will one day go home to heaven. There probably will be the whoops and hollers from the great cloud of witnesses as we arrive! Everyone watching as we greet Jesus and our parents, brothers and sisters, grandparents, great-grandparents, our unborn babies and the children who died before we did. And then the crowd will expand as others greet us. King David, Ruth, Moses, Elijah, Dwight L. Moody, and on and on.... And maybe there will even be some sort of heavenly Puffs too. There will be a feast for sure!! What great rejoicing that will be!
