We spent today at the cabin. When we arrived yesterday, we noticed that one of the neighbors seemed to be around, so we stopped. He was indeed there and we chatted for a while. Since we are very in and out of the place and others are too, we don’t visit people very much. It had been at least a year since we saw him. Today, he and another of my parents’ friends stopped over. As they were visiting, another man showed up to do some work on the water tank. All the men knew each other and caught up for a while before delving in to the job. During conversation, each of the men offered to help my dad with things at the house if he needed. After things settled down and everyone had gone, my dad commented several times how nice it was to visit with old friends – especially those he hasn’t seen in a few years.
I Found God today seeing the joy that friendship brings.
