Friendship

Last year was a difficult year in that most of our family and friends experienced the highs of glory and the lows of grief. Tragedy struck with the going home of loved ones who left before all the goodbyes could be completed. Illness plagued them for the last years of their lives but with that tumult came the new bonds of healing through new friendships. My prayer for your friendships for this year are threefold.

1. Cherish the good memories and use the edit button in the camcorder of life to be able to erase the bad memories through the lens of forgiveness.

2. Form a union in heart and mind with those that you love that would stand the test of discomfort.

3. Reach out more often than you would normally do so that when the call of finality does come the mind is not searching for the chapter marked regret.

Remember that grief and glory are parallels in the race we called living. This makes them siblings under the umbrella of Father God. Make friends with the grief and you will understand glory.

  1. Thank you for sharing, each month at this time I stop to remember our loss of Rich and the tears come, but I always seem to end with a smile because he is right where he wanted to be...singing with God's band. It is hard for us to let go of our grief long enough to see the glory in God's work.

  2. Thank you for reminding us to remember our loved ones. Every second passed, is memory gone forever, so whatever good that can be done, better be done now or it will be never.
