1 John 4:7 Dear friends, let us love one another. For love comes from God. Everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.
I've been thinking a bit about friendship lately. About how easy (relatively speaking) it was to fall into friendships when we were younger, and how much harder it is to find time to build friendships as adults with busy lives and busier children.
Heck, I can't even find time for myself.
But isn't that what friendships are for? We love one another, we fill one anothers' cups with the tea of kindness, and we are blessed by the reflected friendship.
Finding time for friends is finding time for ourselves, I believe. Maybe you have great ideas on how to do both... to spend time on your hobbies and with your best buddies. Maybe you have made best friends with your childrens' friends' parents and share a cup of coffee while they play.
Or maybe you talk on the phone every day to a friend you've know since forever. How do you make time for friends in the midst of the everyday hustle and bustle?
I am going to make some extra time for my friends this season.
For more encouraging words this Wednesday, pop over to see Amy Deanne at the 160 Acre Woods.
