22 Feb 2021 Friendship

Hello to you. How are you today? I am doing pretty good I guess. I am thinking about a question I asked my Aunt yesterday, “How do you make friends?” I asked her because she and my Uncle seem to have so many friends. She said for her it’s that she loves meeting new people; that’s her thing. The other thing is showing a genuine interest in what the person you meet is interested in. The sad truth is though that after you leave school, it’s just harder to meet and make new friends.

If I am honest with myself, it’s never been hard for me to make friends, it’s been hard for me to keep them. When I meet new people I do express genuine interest in what they are talking about. It just seems like a lot of people “pass through” my life but don’t stay or if they do they are not local.

I have been praying for tangible friends to come into my life and eventually a tangible companion who can help share my life. It all starts with friendship. May be I need to learn more about what it means to be a friend before God will shift my life in that direction. I have a lot to learn about a lot of things and being a good friend is definitely one of those things.

Let’s see what friendship is in the numbers:
