12/20/17 Reflection

When Luke was a baby, I served the Elaine, AR United Methodist Church for two years. One of the older men talked about his wife, saying “She left me.” It took me a little bit to realize this was a euphemism for “She died.” I now know that it FEELS like that, even if it’s not really the same thing. If she HAD just “left me,” I could go find her or she could come back. As Sarah said, “This is dumb!”
