My granddaughter celebrated her first birthday on Saturday. It’s astounding to think about all of the milestones that this little one has passed over the past twelve months.
I could not help but reflect on that day when she was born and the anticipation we felt as we waited for her to arrive. After she was born, her proud Dad came smiling into the waiting room proclaiming “It’s a girl, and she’s beautiful!” and I cried and hurried down the hall to meet her. My first words to her were “Welcome, we’ve been waiting for you!”.
Imagine just for a moment, that glorious day when you and I arrive in our heavenly home; we will have passed many milestones by that time as well. There will be Someone there proclaiming those words over us as well. “Welcome, we’ve been waiting for you!” What a thought!
