i was talking with a friend the other day about how my wife and i have met so many great new people this summer that 'feel' like they will be life long friends. i'd like to think that i've gained some discernment since i spent my summers at mt. gilead, hugging everyone good bye, promising to write and keep in touch. but the skeptic in me really makes me wonder if this feeling will endure.
but, maybe a deeper question would be...does it really matter? say we do remain life long friends...that would be wonderful. but say we don't....would that lessen our time together this summer one bit? i don't think so.
sometimes, i have a tendency to over think, or over analyze a situation or a motivation....anybody with me....and i think i should really learn to just accept the joy of the moment. i'm not promoting apathy...but rather, accepting that it is what it is....and just enjoy it....life...friends....experience. god has given it to us all...so that makes it pretty amazing, even if we just accept it at face value.
have a great day!
less of me...
