Yesterday was a great day.
It had nothing to do with the rain or the lack of phone service and intermittent internet service. Not even with the Saints winning!
It was all about re-establishing connections the old fashioned way: face to face.
The last time we saw Harvey and Tina, our eldest was about 2 months old. She turned 21 in November. That's 2 decades! We have exchanged Christmas cards, but not much more than that.
Yesterday, they were at our house, eating at our table. (Well actually, eating in our living room, because we were watching the Saints win!!) And it was like we had never been apart. Some friendships are like that.
In this case, even though the Lord saw fit to separate us for a while, He was drawing us closer to Him. So when we came back together, we were closer to each other than we could have imagined.
