The Last Supper


I've been thinking a lot about Noel Sandon's heart surgery last summer.
Tonight being the night that so many in the world remember the most famous "last supper" had me thinking about the supper we had before Noel's surgery.
Despite the fact that the next day was going to be a life or death day for Noel, we all drove over to Gainsville, got settled into our hotel and then went out to eat together. We laughed and enjoyed each other, the way a family can. It seemed weird, knowing what we were facing the next day, and yet, we were there, relaxing, enjoying the time as if it was a vacation trip.
I started wondering about the last supper....only Jesus and Judas knew what the night, the next day would hold....but, I imagine it must have been much like our night before supper....hanging out with friends, relaxing, enjoying one another's company....while all the while the most profound event in history was about to happen....
The next morning, we gathered together at the hospital to pray together and ask God to intervene on Noel's and our behalf....Jesus also prayed for that, but God, in his love and wisdom, allowed events to play out.....for our behalf......
