No Words with Friends
Between the laughter and the silence, there was reflecting and re-telling of stories- some, tragic beyond expression...others, "drinks out your nose", hysterical.
We were greeted on long red dirt roads by some of God's coolest creatures...
We were entertained by early morning dance parties-
We ate juicy steaks and climbed old trees
There was good wine and good fishing-
We watched some football-
Some traded bath tubs... for swimming pools....
There was little crying and lotsa laughing- little makeup and lotsa bed head
We watched lightning storms and heard rolling thunder...chased armadillos and even had breakfast with Elvis-
Little girls cleared plates and cleaned dishes while little boys (and Elvis) manned the bar and listened to your troubles...
There was plenty of cold beer-
and lots of time to play cards-We listened to great old songs, while looking at detailed old scrapbooks. Memories flooded our minds through handwriting and pictures.
We learned lessons and taught lessons... I wondered who she'd be today, as we talked to kids about life...
and listened to their profound questions-
A weekend of being "unplugged" for me....really lead to being more connected.
"True to your word, you let me catch my breath and send me in the right direction."Psalm 23:2
God, Thank You for MAKING me lie down in green pastures.
