Surreal

Ever had an old friend or acquaintance randomly pop up in your life? I've had two this week, one funny and one tragic. First, I was reading Mark Batterson's blog about an interview he did with Rethink magazine when I noticed a picture of the magazine. The guy on the cover of the magazine? My college friend and photographer extraordinaire, Ryan J. Lane in a stock photo.
Second, a friend from high school, Brian Bradshaw, was tragically killed last week while serving in Afghanistan. An improvised explosive detonated near his vehicle. I can't get the guy out of my mind ever since hearing the news. I remember Brian as sarcastic, kind-hearted, and reliable. He was a good man, and my prayers go out to his family.

It makes me want to call up old friends and catch up on life.
