    This is a great observation Tom. I’ve thought of how sad it would have been for Abraham on the trip to the Mountain, but never thought of the happiness, joy and praise that must have been on that trip home. Wonder if Isaac understood the full meaning of what had happened. It is easy to read the words and comprehend a story, but not finish the personal thoughts that might have been.
    I have lost a child, a little girl after my 2 boys, so I know the sadness and grief of losing a child, but I’m waiting with joy, gladness and praise that I will see her soon, and get to know her. To God be the Glory!

      Thank you for sharing your own story. I can only imagine the pain that losing a child has caused. But we are not of those without hope, and for that, we can all be thankful!

    Thank you for reminding us of the positive, beautiful side of this. What an incredible, faithful life Abraham lived (especially here) and what a joyful Father we all have. Can you imagine the love and joy that Abraham must have offered that sacrifice with, after God provided the lamb!? How God must have rejoiced with Abraham back down that mountain.
