Monday was a family reunion day at our house. We met with our kids for lunch at Red Robin restaurant, then went to Picture People for a family photo with the grand-kids. After giving them a ride on the carousel, we drove back to our house and fixed a bonfire in the fire-pit.  When it was dark enough, Lauren chased lightning bugs (she says they don’t have as many in Tennessee), and Reuben went in to play with his toy cars again. Anita and I are worn out with all the excitement, but they’re all back home now.

Can you imagine what it will be like when we all get to heaven and get to experience the real Reunion? I’d like to ask my ancestors some questions about the family tree, and I’d really like to know what happened to some of my childhood friends and Army buddies.

However, I think we’ll be so caught up in being with Jesus that those other questions will just vanish away. Are you having a family reunion this summer? What are you most looking forward to about it?

I won’t be able to go to any of my family reunions this year because of other commitments; however most of the people there I don’t really know.
I was thinking about this the other day when I was with my fellow summer choir people at our concert at the fair-how much I love all of them and have such a good time with them, and it never seems like we get to be together enough. Just for a second I thought about all of us being together, with God, for eternity, and I had to stop thinking about it because it makes me so emotional! How absolutely amazing it will be to spend forever with our brothers and sisters in Christ! 🙂
