I received a most wonderful letter last week from Jessica of the Boyer Sisters. Sitting working on writing my reply, I started hashing out my thoughts on friendships and how they come and go and change over a lifetime.
Whether I express myself well or not through the rest of this post, the one thing I want to be absolutely clear on is that I believe friendships are a gift from God. If nothing else makes sense, I hope that does.
One thing that I struggle with is the fact that friends will come and go. Certain friends and acquaintances may only be there for certain seasons of life. And I need to remember that is okay. They have influenced my life and I have influenced their's to the extent that God has willed.
Some people will be closer friends than others. And vice versa. Accepting that can be a little hard for me, but I can't be bosom friends or kindred spirits with everyone. Some people I will never be close to. Others It takes time to get to know and feel like I am a good friend. And then there are some that I just seem to click with. I may not have known them that long, but it feels right to be good friends.
I find it interesting how you just connect with certain friends or people more than others. I suppose it is a similar phenomenon to having a favorite color. I can't really explain why I like red, but I do. So why do I connect with certain people better? This is where I think I must attribute it to God. Somehow He arranges it that way whether it is due to the personalities or common interests He gives each individual person or some other means.
Thank you for putting up with me while I sort through my random and vague thoughts on the subject!
