Sunrise in Sweden

The sun is rising in Sweden.

It is the last sunrise my son will see 
before he begins his long journey home.

Two years of humble service 
for his Savior
as a missionary called of God 
to proclaim His holy gospel.

Two years seems like forever to a mother...

so grateful he could go,
so full of joy that it is finally time 
to come home.

Tomorrow night...
and I am so excited!

  1. Beautiful sunrise, I can imagine that you will be so very happy to have your son back home. Sweden is not so far from Scotland, high time I had a trip there.

  2. So exciting!  Have a wonderful reunion with your boy.  In just 10 years my oldest son will be off on his mission, if all goes well.

    And I am happy for you to have your son back home. Mine is just 9 hours drive away, but it might as well be in another country. I do miss him.
