Ties that Bind are Eternal

The Old Hymn Rings True:

Blessed Be the Tie that Binds
1. Blessed be the tie that binds
Our hearts in Christian love;
The fellowship of kindred minds
Is like that to that above.

2. Before our Father's throne
We pour our ardent prayers;
Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one
Our comforts and our cares.
3. We share each other's woes,
Our mutual burdens bear;
And often for each other flows
The sympathizing tear.
4. When we asunder part,
It gives us inward pain;
But we shall still be joined in heart,
And hope to meet again.
5. This glorious hope revives
Our courage by the way;
While each in expectation lives,
And longs to see the day.
6. From sorrow, toil and pain,
And sin, we shall be free,
And perfect love and friendship reign
Through all eternity. 

I just connected with and arranged to meet a friend next month that I have known for 30 years.  We have only met a few times in person.  He is the reason I live in Illinois.  

I am looking foward to seeing him again.  Meeting his wife.  Having them Meet Peggy.

Here's the prophetic truth.  Ties that Bind are deep, long lasting, eternal and precious.  BLESSED.

Every person I get to know in one way or another who is of like precious faith becomes a tie that binds us together... forever.

That give me great comfort.  I may never see you in the flesh.. but I will see you eventually.... eternally.
