Joyful Reunion

 

Justin Hutchinson was returning from a nine-month deployment to Afghanistan. His seven-year-old daughter, Brayden, was joyfully anticipating her father’s homecoming. Waiting at the airport, she held a sign that read: OUTTA MY WAY!!! I GET MY DADDY BACK TODAY!!!

 

There are few occasions more heart-warming than a joyful reunion.

 

Perhaps the happiest reunion I ever witnessed was watching some missionary friends returning to the United States and being greeted at the airport by family members.

 

What’s the best reunion you ever saw?

 

Any earthly reunions will fail to compare to the heavenly get-together we will have with loved ones who have gone on before us. The Bible says, “…We who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words.”—1 Thessalonians 4:17-18.

 

Those are encouraging words, indeed!
