Sunday afternoon, I was sitting at my laptop when I got an instant message from one of my Facebook friends. It was an old friend that I haven't seen in years that I recently reconnected with on Facebook. You gotta love Facebook for that.
Anyway, we chatted online for a bit just catching up. In the course of the chatting, when I asked where he was living these days, he revealed that he and his wife had recently separated. Though it has been several years, I remember him as an all around good guy and a devout Christian, not that Christians are immune from marital strife.
It saddens me to hear the news of his separation, not just because of their marriage, but because they have kids. That always makes it tough. I don't know if there is a chance of them working it out or not. We agreed that we should get together soon for a beverage or two. I hope we do.
Thinking about our chat, it made me think of the song "Highway 20 Ride" by The Zac Brown Band. It is a song about the feelings of a divorced father and his relationship with his kids and ex. It is also my choice this week for Music Monday.
