We’re to feature REUNIONs in this
week’s Midweek Motif . It occasioned
me to muse and philosophize.

In a conversation with my father, not long before he passed
into the Great Beyond, I asked “Do you believe in a life
hereafter, Dad?” My father (descended from a long line
of God-fearing ancestors with names like Bishop, Lot and
Absolam), who had attended our little country church faithfully
with my mother and who had taught the young couples’ Sunday
School class, said “Of course I do” …. and, after a long
hesitation said “if there is such a thing”. We, each of us,
form our own particular beliefs, which change as we grow
older and wiser. I’m sure we’ve all had experiences of déjà vu
or met some kindred spirit it seems we’ve always known.
Perhaps these ARE reunions with someone we’ve known
in a past life. I like to think I will see my loved ones and
friends again, and that Dad and I will have a chance to
continue our conversation!
