Abba’s house came into sight and little girl’s feet went from a brisk gait to a near sprint as she approached home from a long day’s walk. She had walked up and down the beautiful rolling hills for hours that had seemed like days. She had encountered and learned many things that Abba had told her about.
From Abba’s porch when she had sat on his lap she had only seen the hills from a distance, and the magnitude of their height and their depth had been lost on little girl. That was when she had first come home to Abba’s house and when she began to realize Abba was faithful and that He would never forget her nor leave her alone.
As she saw home from a little distance after the day away where she had taken in so many new and wonderful things, she also saw Abba. He was waiting for her in the same place where she’d bid him goodbye. As she saw Him again, she ran towards Him. She realized how much she had missed Him and how thankful she was to be back home.
