Aaron comes home from Shanghai tonight..where he has been for just over a week. He flies away a lot which is always hard on him and us.
Zibby just adores her Daddy, and when I told her this morning that he was coming home tonight, she could barely contain her joy.
When I called the kids out to eat dinner she wouldn't sit down, she kept saying, "Daddy is coming...he will be here for dinner."
Then when I put her to bed she told me again, "Daddy is coming home for me."
A little while after I tucked her in and went down stairs I could heard a plane fly over our house.
"HI DADDEEEEEE....DOWN HERE....HI!.....WE ARE ALL HERE! DADDEEE IS HOME!"
Obviously shouting out her bedroom window into the summer night....ready and waiting for Daddy to come home.
And I thought to myself, I want to be waiting with all that joy and expectation for Jesus.
Thanks for the lesson little sister.
