Ready? GO.

There’s really nothing like meeting up with an old friend, maybe even after months or years of little to no contact, and picking right back up where you left off, as if no time at all had passed.

It’s almost like coming home. 

You know, those friends for whom you don’t even need to “get the house ready” when you know they’re on their way. You might even stay in your pajamas, so long as there’s a full gallon of ice cream waiting in the freezer and two clean spoons.

Those friends who make you settle into yourself, as if whatever worries that consumed you have now been consumed, simply by the steady presence of another.

What a gift, friendships like those.

I wonder if heaven will be a bit like that. Even better, I presume. As if everyone we see there will be long lost friends, blood brothers and sisters united by the shed blood of the cross.

I foresee a glorious homecoming, a sharp inhalation of astonishment followed by a deep and satisfied exhale.

Wide smiles and creased eyes, and a slow sinking into the familiar, reliable presence.

The comfort of home.
