Cow

This is the only photo of a cow we've got.

Dad: What do you have if you are served a young, girl cow for dinner?

Son: I don't know. What do you have if you are served a young, girl cow for dinner?

BiblehandLove does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. (NIV)

What is it about leaving the light on for kids at bedtime? It’s all right to turn off the light in the bedroom, but the hall light needs to stay on. At least, for many children that’s how it is. It was for me when I was young(er).

Is it the fact that the hall light allows them to see what’s going on in the bedroom? Is it a case of not wanting to be abandoned in a darkened room where there’s no evidence that there is anyone else in the world? Is it a concern to know where to go if they need help?

Whatever the reason (or reasons) for any particular child, the light in the hall is a comfort at bedtime.

So does this guy who wrote a looooong post about it.

And then I wrote a comment under that post, which I've reproduced below, slightly edited with some headings (because I know most of you won't read the actual comment)...

Grieving for a friendship subdued.

Though written years ago, this is still true.

Good friends are a precious, precious find.

In my life I've been blessed to have made a number of friendships that have survived the stretching and twisting of distance and time; friendships which, though sometimes slow to start and now cultivated in spurts and spats, are far more valuable than the millions of friends I sometimes dreamed about when I was younger. They are people - guys, usually - who are honest, flawed and better friends to me than I am to them. I value them highly - more than they realise, I'm sure.

Which is why I am so grieved one of those friends thinks I'm committing adultery.
