I was outside working in the yard when the neighbor’s dog, Max, came out to play. With one loud bark, my three dogs, Fancy, Riley, and Butch jumped up off the couch and ran to the fence to greet their friend. I watched as they ran up and down the fence, barking at each other with their tails wagging profusely. I had to smile as I thought about what the conversation might sound like to them:Riley: We’re so happy to see you! Where have you been? Max: I had to wait for my person to come home for lunch. Butch: I know we just saw each other this morning but it seems like forever! Max: I know! Did you guys get any treats today? Fancy: No! Our person is busy mowing the lawn. I’ll bark really loud later and maybe she’ll share her lunch! Max: Good luck with that! I have to go guys! See you tonight! Riley: OK! We’ll see you later! Bye!
And with that, they all went their separate ways.
In our lives, there will be friends you see everyday and friends you see once every five years. While we wait for the next time, we find multiple ways to keep in touch. Phone calls, text messages, cards, email, and social media become the “fence” we run to in order to greet each other.
I don’t know when we will see you next but until then, consider checking out our social media pages. There you will find encouragement and the opportunity to experience life, love, and family with us! We’d love to connect with you!Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/housechurchtulsa Follow and tweet with us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/hctulsa Follow us on Intsagram: housechurchtulsa
