“while he was still a long way off” (Luke 15:13)
Ben and I were at SRQ airport this morning to meet Bruce’s son Nelson (with his own daughter Emma) who are here from Chatham, MA for the weekend.
We stood and waited at the arrivals end of a long concourse, as various and sundry passengers came towards us.
Amongst them was a mother with two children in a twin push-chair. One was not yet a toddler and the other was what looked to be a three year old.
The older child, a daughter, spotted what must have been her aunt, (she looked very much like the mother) who was standing near us. This little one started to run, and run, and run, as fast as she possibly could.
She ran for about 150 yards, and sprang up into the arms of the waiting aunt.
It was a lovely sight.
