Over the course of a few days, I’ve reconnected with a dear friend with whom I’ve been out of touch, deepened a friendship with a current friend, and met a new friend to arrange a morning get together for coffee. I love the possibilities.
And I love waiting on God’s timing for friendship in the midst of work and parenting. I love friendship when it comes along, at just the right time, with sudden breathing room in life.
Some seasons of life feel rich in friendships; other seasons feel sparse and more empty of socializing, as if God invites us deeper into friendship with Him alone.
When periods of deepening friendships happen, I thank God for these times as a precious gift.
