One of the most important keys to a successful and fulfilling life is friends. We are not made to walk this journey alone – we are made for and need others. True friends are priceless.
Gordon MacDonald covers this beautifully in his book – A Resilient Life.
Today it is hard to focus on writing. Two dear friends who have been our mentors are walking through a hard time. These two wonderful people have loved us, taught us, guided us, and encouraged us. We are what we are, is in a large part due to their input into our lives.
Today though, they are at the hospital as the life support is turned off for their 44-year old daughter this morning. She had an aneurysm earlier this week. We had just had lunch with her and her parents only a couple of weeks ago while in Mississippi. She leaves behind two teenage children after having been divorced just a few months ago. I cannot imagine what these children are going through.
Fortunately, all of them have a deep and abiding faith in our Lord. So, if for some reason they come to your mind today, would you pray for them?
Friends are precious.
