A long time missing

16 years. That's a long time to miss someone.

But today we're going to focus on celebrating instead of missing.  I'm going to look my people in the eye and tell them a story about this man they've never met.  I will fill my table with new friends and good food.  I will open my heart and mind to the truth of His Word and praise His faithfulness with my church family. I will remember his laugh, his voice, his gestures and maybe cry some.

But mostly, I will celebrate this life that I live and his indelible influence that runs through my life like a strong, bright cord.
