Gathering

If you recall, a few days ago the message was about calling or contacting those from your past that you may have lost contact with or have not heard from in a long time.  That comes to heart again today as we will have some visitors over that we haven't seen in a few years.
All that time and distance disappears as we know we will get to see them and the wonderful memories that are stirred upon thoughts of such!

Acquaintances from past ago-

'friends' have they become!
Then deeper that relationship
and 'family' be sum!
We shall gather once again,
oh, I can hardly wait!
It's only by the grace of God
that we can congregate!

"Thank You, Lord, for them that are

to dine with us today.
O join us at that table, Lord,
it's YOUR LOVE we convey!
That wonderful relationship
begun to honor You,
the same become the deepest now,
just look what we've been through!

Thank You for this gathering

and them that gather here.
Thank You for the faithfulness
that's kept us yet so near!
Thank You for the love that comes
as we draw near to You-
How precious be this 'family'
with meeting overdue!"

So much can come between us and those we love.  Once we begin to name those things, we realize that it is "life...," and how precious that life is as we are allowed to gather once again.
