Seasons of Friends

We always hear life is a journey.
What does that really mean?

I've been reflecting lately on friendships I've had over the years.
Our move has had me thinking.

Some are with you for many years others only a few months.
Childhood friends, church friends, kid activity friends, neighbors, friends you meet by chance.... the list goes on and on.

As life changes so does the contact with these special people in your lives.
Just because life has taken you in a different path doesn't mean these people are less important.
These memories and journey is very important in who you are and who you become.

Each of my friendships have had purpose and I value the time spent with each and everyone.
God brings people together when you need it.

I can't tell you how many times I've been praying for a particular thing and someone comes into my path and helps me or leads me in the right direction.

Today I'm praying for all the people I've called friends over the years. Those of you I've emailed in the blog world to those of you who I've known as long as I can remember in real life.

May God Bless each of you and bring you peace today.

Thank you God for friendship.

I see a beautiful image in heaven seeing familiar friendly faces along your path.

We're all here on Earth striving for the same goal.
Let's pray for one another and ask for God's blessings.
Maybe today is the day you call a friend you've lost contact with just to say hi.

I was just thinking about friendships the other day and how difficult it is to go through "break ups" in friendships. There have been friends I've loved and then we've found ourselves going in different directions and needing to just let go of a friendship that's become more of a burden than a healthy place. Good friends are really such a blessing in life. Those people who stick with you through your whole life--they are few and far between.

Jen, what a lovely post. So true. I'm glad that we've 'met' and happy to call you my friend. :)
