Jerry and I have been here in Santa Maria since early afternoon on Friday awaiting the beginning of our annual church camp which convenes this evening at 7:00. It has been a quiet, delightful time of rest, relaxation and fellowship.
Our summer family camp is my favorite church meeting of the year: The best of speakers come our way and it is a relaxed informal gathering.
My friends come.
The morning I spent along the beach at Rincon, I sat in one spot and, for a good half hour, watched this hole. Empty, it waited the surging and filling of the water…and as I watched, it reminded me of friends.
Drained, spent, we wait for them.
