Friends are Forever

Friends forever. True Blue.... There is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother? All wonderful descriptions of the few true friends that we find in our life. A reunion this weekend... a reunion of old friends that love one another and hear one another and nourish one another and most of all TREASURE one another. My friend, it has been years since we have seen one another. We reconnected last year and had a wonderful talk and have emailed, chatted and prayed for one another and yet we just couldn't make the connections with the life going on around us..... time.... worldly busyness, godly busyness, family busyness... then the note... the note that you get and you read between the lines... you sense and know that your friend needs you... no matter what... and you have to respond.. you can put things off no longer..... The sister that neither of us ever had..... Well, that is what yesterday brought... Good friends, best friends back together for a reunion... yes, there were tears... yes, there have been struggles in the time past... but the tie that binds was still intact... Our bond in Christ and the friendship that endures time and circumstances. I love my friends, Randy and Pam. We had a wonderful time of fellowship and sharing together! I am so thankful to our Savior for this special friendship and for the joy that we shared and will continue to share. Friendships that can just take off where they last were together... ones that withstand the ebb and tides of our lives... Ones that know alllllllll about us and love us anyway!

Hubby recognized and felt the bond immediately upon meeting them also. And he met another friend..... he fell in love with Bitsy! lol Bitsy is a Bull Mastiff and she is one of the sweetest, most loving dogs we have ever met. We weren't quite sure how she and our Spot would get a long so we didn't mix them up .... but our Spot did get out and enjoy it too.... ending up in their pond at one time! Wish we had seen that happen.... we saw him AFTER he got out and was all wet of course!
