Recently I was touring an old Bible with small print. I’ve loved and used that Bible – but now I use larger print. Sometimes I will find a little scrap of paper with a Bible verse or, sometimes, money in a Bible. This Bible had a phone number and a name. To write something in my Bible meant it was important. I awaited inspiration but none came. I may have a future flashback but today that important person is forgotten. I hope you don’t think me mean. It was a person who I valued and have forgotten – friends forever. That is difficult if you remember your besties from elementary school. This week I actually had a coffee meet-up with that person in my life. We have shared the good times and the bad. She is so kind and forgiving. I hope I am a good friend but she is unforgettable. I’m reminded that some friends are for a season. King Solomon said things like, “As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend. A friend liveth at all times,… To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;”. There is more in Ecclesiastes Chapter 3. It reminds me that friends are embraced and let go. Location, marriage, career, children, seasons, views, kindness, perceived offenses, and any change may postpone a reunion until the next life. We will catch up then, my friend, whoever you are and wherever you are.
