We've been back in the Republic of Texas for the last week spending time with my son Alex and some close friends. It's been good to be back and enjoying "real salsa", great Mexican food and the incredible southern hospitality unique to TX.
The most meaninful part for me has been getting to press play once again with some close friends who have been part of our lives for 10+ years. Conversations have been deep and gone late into the night. Lack of sleep has been a small price to pay for a full heart and encouragement in the Gospel.
Much of our visist has been simply pressing play once again with those whom we love and are loved by deeply. We've simply picked up where we left off three years ago.
Distance, lack of face time and preoccupation with our new setting and life created some silence in our relationship but it didn't creating lasting separation. Thankful for that.
Pressing play once again has resulted in some familiar songs being played in our lives, the music we're hearing is not just enjoyable for listening, it's life giving.
