"Anna sat watching the road by which her son was to come."
We parents do a good deal of "watching the road" by which our kids come home, don't we? Listening for their call, watching the driveway, listening for the car door to shut. We spend a good deal of time waiting for the kids. Is that how God waits for us? I think so. The father in the Prodigal Son story sees his son coming from a far-off distance, because he is out there, watching the road. And he runs to greet his son the minute he recognizes that familiar figure. Our God is just as happy and eager to welcome us coming up the metaphoric road towards Home, too. Today, as we wind up another week, let's head towards Home. Let's try to spend a bit of time sitting in silence with God, not necessarily saying anything, but just a bit of time in quiet, listening. When we make special time to just be with God, God sees us coming up the road, heading Home. And God hurries to meet us. Love, heidi
