Think About ItPastor Rich LaskowskiIt was my thirty-year high school reunion, and I was both nervous and excited to seethe people I had spent those amazing youthful years with. As Jennifer and I walked intoCoveleski Stadium in South Bend, Indiana, my mind turned to memories of football games,concerts, and crazy things l'd rather not talk about.We arrived, and I looked for familiar faces, but couldn't recognize any of them. I turned tomy wife and said "I think were in the wrong place, this isn't the class of 78". But it wasClay High School Class of 78- it was just the bald, old, and fat version.Over dinner we reminisced I heard stories of life's ups and downs. Those "kids" of myteens were adults now, with real problems and tragedies, no longer trying to be cool inthe hall way between classesTime had taken its toll on the outside, looks had changed, but as we sat across the table,we finally saw the real person inside, humbled by years, but real. We were bald, old, andfat, but now able to look past the surface, and see the human heart that had been thereall along.
