      Visiting Day
      
           He was looking forward to this moment
            all day long, after 6 days of
          labor and it finally arrived - Visiting Day!
      
      The man with the keys arrived to
            swing open the large, heavy doors.
          The cold gray hall springs to life in
           the warm glow of light. He
          could hardly control his emotions.
          The families began to arrive. He
            peers from the corner of the room,
          longing for the first glimpse of
           his loved ones.
     
            He lives for the weekends.
            He lives for these visits. As the cars
           arrive, he watches intently.
           Then, finally, they arrive, for whom he
           would do anything.
     
          They embrace, eat a light lunch
            and reminisce how things used to be.
          At one point they break into singing
        with interruptions of laughter
         and applause.
     
           But, all too soon it is over.
            A tear comes to his eyes as they depart.
          Then the man with the keys
          close the heavy doors. He hears the
          key turn in the lock marking the
          end of a special day. There he stands,
        alone again. He knows that
        most of his visitors will
           not contact him again till next week.
     
         As the last car pulls away from the
          parking lot, Jesus retreats into
           loneliness as He waits until next Sunday
      - Visiting Day.
      
            Is the time that we spend with
            Jesus an everyday thing, or do we just
          visit Him on Sunday?
         Think about it.
