This past Saturday, I had the honor of reuniting with some of my best friends from my days at ORU. It is at times like this where I am extremely grateful for relationships that pick right back up after a long absence. It is so fascinating to see where each of us have grown over the past year. I know that I, for one, have mellowed out pretty dramatically in some areas. Other members of our group have had some serious life change in the past year, whether in job location, relational status, or other areas.
The thing I love most about the fluidity of relationships is the allowance for change. Time has passed, life situations have shaped character, and yet we still get along. We are still bonded.
This is also the cool thing about our relationship with Christ. Even if we distance ourselves from Him, He is always ready to pick right back up where we left off. So good.
Thank The Lord for good friends 🙂
