Thank you for so many friends, good friends, both fun and serious ones, some who have been so for decades. They are quite more than friends — they are eternal brothers and sisters, who will share with me in the unspeakable heavenly inheritance. What are Christian friendships but gifts from you?… First for this earthly life, and then for that coming one, gifts that remind us of the unique bond we have through our Savior, gifts that strengthen our hope and point us to the day when we will not have these same limitations of time and space. What a Day that will be! Help me cherish each one, thanking them, and encouraging them, for being a part of my life. Thank you, Lord Jesus.
