Yesterday was an old friend's birthday; now, that in itself is not unusual, but he does not disclose this on FaceBook... and I didn't have it written down at all either. It just popped into my head!! Sometimes this happens: we remember a person, or we see a date and it triggers a distant memory. I remember throwing him a surprise 21st birthday party - 1996 He remembers the Pingu birthday cake!! Suddenly rediscovered memories: friends; events; special occasions... little glimpses that remind us that we are not alone; we do not live in isolation - we are all part of God's big, amazing and wondrous family!! Praise be!
