Friends at Christmas
Updated: Oct 17, 2021
I’m very thankful that God has blessed me with so many people who I can count as friends. Around Christmas friendship takes on a new premium. Let’s be honest: it’s just no fun to celebrate this holiday alone. Life is always better when it’s shared. God eternally has existed in community with himself (the three persons of the one God co-existing together … figure that one out), and in His image there is a part of us that longs to be together with others. One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is to spend time with friends that I don’t get to see everyday. It’s pretty much routine for us to set up some time to get together and catch up or arrange a long-distance call to reconnect. Some of these guys I feel so connected to it’s like we’re long-lost family and my life extends into theirs. When they win … I win. When they cry … I cry. These moments allow us to share life, even when thousands of miles separate us. Its pretty easy to get caught in the routine and forget what really matters isn’t it? I’m glad there are monuments and events that call me occasionally to refocus on what really matters. Where does your focus need to be adjusted?
