Roberts Liardon tells us that watching Jesus as He passed beneath the trees outside, Rebecca saw two young girls approach Him. She knew who they were—Mary Bates and Mae Camden. Flying to meet Him with great joy, they took His hands and accompanied Him on His way. Rebecca realized that they were like younger children with a dearly loved elder brother.
Mrs. Wickham appeared, and she knew that Rebecca’s heart was very full from her encounter with Jesus. Gently leading her to the door, she allowed Rebecca to go without speaking.
Roberts Liardon tells us that arriving at home, Rebecca found Frank sitting on the veranda. One look at her face told him that she had been with Jesus. Rebecca hurried to the solitude of her room where she relived each moment she had spent in His presence. She began to thank God for this privilege and then joined Frank in praise to her Creator.
