If a body catch a body

I hung out with a friend at the Mudlounge tonight who I haven’t seen since high school. Later, I considered how wonderful the conversation was and how good it was to talk with her, and then realized that as good a time as it was, that conversation could never happen again. This catching-up, this was the only shot we had at it. Next time we talk, we’ll have done all the catching up, and have to come up with new topics. It won’t be the same.

But I’m happy. I’m so damned happy, because my life is fantastic. God has blessed us greatly, we have a beautiful home, I’m crazy in love with my wife…

Tomorrow, we’re having Emily Manck over for lunch, so I had to go to Wal-Mart after leaving the Mudlounge to get a few things. After coming home and putting them away, I still wasn’t tired, so I went for a walk in the park. It’s pretty, and awesome, and empty because it’s so late at night. The tennis courts are nice, and I’m going to propose to April that we have super-late-night tennis matches very soon (before it gets too cold).

I sat on a wall and talked to God. I’ve been thinking a lot about Christian Mysticism for the last… well, somewhat since I became Christian, but really for the last six months or so. I think I’m drawing closer to some sort of realization about our place in the world, or at least mine. About my body and its place in the world. About the nature of worship and interaction with the Holy Spirit. Dave Gill, we need to have a long conversation sometime about worship (it feels like I’ve said that phrase at least 3-4 times so far in the last two years).

Goodnight.

  1. Wow. Cool that you hung out with a friend who is a girl. I cannot wait to be crazy in love & have that crazy in love returned. Sounds like a good night. Where was April?

  2. April is at a women’s retreat with our church, and will be back today around noon (soon enough to join in lunch 🙂 ).

    And in addition to my old friend Ashley, my friends Ryan and Brenda were there. Not that there are any issues with my hanging out solo with a member of the opposite sex; April and I trust each other completely, and don’t have any problems in that area. But Ashley, though she and I were in Speech & Debate together, was closer friends with Ryan and had contacted him to hang out. He and his new fiancĂ©e invited me to join them, which I happily did.
