With Whom Have You Lost Touch?

PORTAL: A doorway, gate, or other entrance, especially a large and imposing one. METAPHOR-DU-JOUR: Losing Touch

“Gifford” came in for an evaluation. I hadn’t met a “Gifford” since first grade.

I immediately wondered how I lost touch with Gifford Lorenz. We’d visit each other’s houses. And then he was gone.

Dave DeLucia was a neighbor and friend throughout our middle school years. We shared a love for sports to the point of erecting a basketball hoop in his garage which taught us how to take the arc off our shots.

One day we had a fight. He was bigger and he pinned me within seconds. I hardly saw him again except from the stands where I’d watch him catch passes as a tight end at our high school football games.

Danny Lau was the fastest and funniest kid I knew and we did everything together. We graduated grade school and immediately drifted into different circles in high school.

Scott Edelheit was my motorcycle buddy. We graduated and I can’t remember the last time I saw him.

The latter two passed away early in life.

When is the exact moment when we lose touch with someone?

If someone gave you a crystal bowl from Lenox, it would find a showcase spot in your cabinet beautifully reflected by the overhead light.

When God gives us relationships, how is it that we misplace them?

PORTAL TO HEAVEN: What we value is what we seem to hold onto.

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor,If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Ecclesiastes 4:9 NASB, Proverbs 18:24 NASB
