FRIEND . . . I feel pain and joy when I think of various friends . . .
friends that I thought would always be close, that would always be my BFF.
I know the pain of friends going a different way in life than I ever imagine.
I know the rejection of friends.
I see how God has allowed certain friends to be out of my life to prevent further heartbreak with decisions and ways of life I would not choose.
And there are the friends that are always friends, even as we we are busy in our lives with our families and life. . . .
we can pick up right where we left off, as though we talk every day. There’s a heart-to-heart connection that time and distance cannot separate. One dear couple my husband and I love, we met with several months ago at a restaurant. We had not gotten together with them in several years. We met at 6 pm, and talked, and talked, and talked . . . then realizing it’s getting quite late and very quiet in the restaurant, to find out it was well after midnight! Where did the time go? I wonder if this is how our friendships and meeting up with our missed loved ones in heaven, will be. Like we never lost time.
Most of all, I am learning more and more how one Friend, the Man closer than a brother, Abba Father, is always a whisper away, and is more than enough to fulfill the desires I need and want in a friend. He won’t reject or disappoint. He won’t forget me. He knows what and who I need in my life more than I do.
What a Friend I have in Jesus!
