I have two friends from childhood. One (Juliana) moved next door when I was seven and she was five. The other (Aminie) moved down the street when I was nine and she was eight. I can’t believe I have friends that I’ve known for 40 years. I feel old.
Recently, I tried to get in touch with Aminie but the contact number and email I had changed. Here’s the beauty of Facebook. I typed in her name and she had a Facebook account. I sent her a message and she sent me her new number.
We talked on the phone and it was as if no time passed between us. That’s what I love about old friends (not friends that are old – I’m just clarifying my statement) – some things never change. You know each other’s history. You have love and friendship that has stood the test of time. You speak each others language. You can catch up in nothing flat. I can’t remember the last time we spoke, but it felt like yesterday.
I’ve found for me that’s what its like with my relationship with God. I wish I could say that I’m really good to keep up all the time. There are times when life is busy and I don’t speak to Him for an extended period time. What I’m talking about is quality time with Him. Not a day goes by that I don’t offer prayers up to Him. He loves me. He knows my history. Our relationship has stood the test of time. He speaks my language. I can catch up in nothing flat. I love that the most about Him.
