10 Minutes Peace

Reunion
Date Posted: August 6, 2005
I can't believe it's been twenty years! I've been frantically working to help put together a high school class reunion and none of us can seem to figure out where the time has gone.

We're all busy with jobs and kids, soccer and PTO, paying bills and saving for dreams. The time slips past and when a marker appears on the road, like that 20-year reunion invitation, we have to stop and wonder what we've actually been doing all that time.

Although the plans can be hectic, I look forward to seeing many classmates and meeting their families. This time we decided to have a family lawn party, rather than a formal dinner. I think it will be fun to see my classmates' children and learn more of them through their families.

Will heaven be like that -- a big reunion? Will we know all those people we were "schooled" with so long ago in our life on earth? Will we rejoice to see them again? Will we meet all their spiritual "children" -- those whom they introduced to the Lord?

Perhaps our heavenly bodies will not be easy to recognize and we won't know our former loved ones. But I believe there will be some connection. Even if we don't know others in the same way we did in this life, what a joyous reunion just to be gathered with the body of Christ in His presence!
