Saturday Night Live

No, not the TV show - just my post of the day. It was a good day -- spent some time at church doing prep work for upcoming services, then home to work on a sermon. Had a call from Ben which brightened my day. He sent me a picture of himself from Texas and it made me miss him all the more. By this time tomorrow night, I will be waiting at his house for his return and I suspect it will be a warm reunion -- though we may just cuddle up and sleep -- I know he will be exhausted. Just to have him home will be wonderful. It amazes me that, even though I don't get to be with him much during the week, I seem to miss him even more when he is away. I think the difference comes from the distance. When we are each in our own homes, we are still in decent driving distance (100 miles or so), but when he is out of state, there's no chance of being together in the moment. Call me a sentimental old fool, but there is comfort in knowing that I can jump in the car and be with him in less than 2 hours if he's home -- or I can even meet him halfway. Ah well, have to constrain myself until tomorrow night. Now it's time for me to go put finishing touches on tomorrow's service and get some sleep. Wherever your weekend plans take you, take time out for God AND take time to tell someone you love them -- and mean it! Blessings...
