Friends for Life

I often take my inspiration for writing from my morning bible lesson.

Out of the 3 lessons that I am currently working through, friends was the theme in all of them. Isn’t it crazy when that happens? Reading from 3 different lessons, 3 different parts of the bible and they all have a similar focus.

I am 39, about to be 40 in a hot minute. When I am honest with myself, I would say that I have less than 10 good friends. Friends that would come running if something were wrong, offer me a place to stay and communicate with me on a regular basis.

This is MUCH different from 20 and even 30. I spent a little time focusing on a lot of relationships. Now, I spend a lot of time focusing on a few relationships.

This stay at home order has shown me EXACTLY who those people are. The ones that I feel like I want to check in with nearly daily. They offer me kind words, wisdom and even prayers.

I mourn friendships that I have lost. As I get older, I understand more and more it is about growth. Evolving through my life, means that I have outgrown or grown apart from friendships.

Many people have stepped into my life for a reason or a season. I think the handful that are still here at 40, will be around for years to come. They know my true self, they love it and appreciate it.
