Thank God for Friends

I just returned from a short trip to Coronado, CA with my wife, 4 kids, and some of our closest friends. We were blessed with incredible weather and even better fellowship. It is beautiful when distance doesn't change things. Our friends moved away about 5-6 years ago and we only are able to get together about once a year. But, it is like nothing has changed when we are blessed to spend time together. Like Michael W. Smith said in his tune Friends, “a lifetimes not too long to live as friends.”

My two oldest sons are still best friends with their oldest two sons. After some hugs, they pick up right where they left off. I am convinced they will always be best friends. Again, it is a beautiful thing. Friends are a blessing from the Lord. Thank you God for giving us friends to love.

Until we see each other again, "I thank my God for my remembrance of you."
