Days Like Yesterday

Yesterday, Juli, Ashlyn, and I welcomed over 50 friends for a BBQ.  The weather wasn't the best, but it could have been a lot worse.  I think the food was good and the conversations were even better.  As  I reflect back on our first four years here in Ireland I am so thankful for all of the good friends we've made.  When lots of people come together in community you're reminded of how important relationships really are.  Sure, we miss our family and friends back home and we're looking forward to seeing many of them soon, but we have made a home away from home in Ireland.  I imagine in the new creation in the age to come, the time and spaces and people and places that our separated now will somehow come together in ways that we can't even fathom.  But days like yesterday give us a glimpse of what that renewed world will be like. - Shay
