...the rest of the story
I left off last time with the story of my old friend Chris.... saying
That was around 15 years ago... then the phone rings the other day... it's Chris saying how he couldn't get me off his mind and had to call me... what a blast.... a few days later he is here at the B&B and we are having coffee together again... for 2 hours we carried on and on and on... picked up our lives where we had left off... like we hadn't missed a beat... amazing how that is the way that it is... with real relationships... with connected dots... with friends... it's like yesterday... only it is 15 years later.
We talked through all the "never got your message/never saw your email" stuff... I even showed him the family picture from the last Christmas card he had sent me ... posted up on my prayer wall... with this little lady ... maybe 7 years old... who had just graduated from college! That blew him away. We had been praying for his family all those years.
It's just one of those... what Philip calls... God things! It was time... God wanted us to get re-connected. I am enjoying the things Chris is writing on his blog. He calls it "think about it".... check it out in my blog-roll over on the right side of the page...
hmmmm... Philip's Musings" and Chris' "Think About It" .... hmmmm...
Relationships need to be worked at... we need to get past misunderstandings... I know that Chris and I will be working at it... a couple dots have been re-connected... and we are both thinking and musing about lots of things.
How about you... is your thinker/muser being exercised?
