I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to explain the mystery of how some friends connect in such a way that they become…family. Family in the true sense of the word. I have a great relationship with my parents and in-laws. I’d classify it as intimate. The ability to be real, honest, and vulnerable. Extend out into the other circles of “family” and it’s friendly but not intimate.
I like friendly. It’s nice. But I crave intimacy. I think we all do. God has hard-wired us for it.
And in the best of times, hopefully, our earthly relationships gives us a taste of what heaven will be like.
That’s not to say the entire weekend wasn’t without it’s share of drama. We had 4 girls in the house. You can do the math. I’m amazed at how young the mothering instinct kicks in. I’m also amazed how quickly they get angry, forgive, and drive on. Sermon in there somewhere.
So as life returns to normal…here some of our favorite moments of the reunion too short.
