Last night I met up with four friends from my hometown (crazy that we’ll all be 30 years old within a year!) and we had an incredible time catching up. My sentimental friend Lisa made us play “High/Low”, and we had to share our High Point and Low Point of the last year. I highly recommend this game when you get together with friends you don’t get to see very often. We laughed…we cried…good times were had by all.
We had to wait over 2 hours to get our food at the restaurant. (To their credit, they did give us two free appetizers before finally bringing out our sushi.) We were irritated about it at the time, but the wait turned out to be a blessing in disguise. It gave us plenty of time to talk and catch up, with no pressure to do anything or go anywhere. Some of our “highs” were very high, and some of the “lows” were very low indeed, so we needed the time to talk. Our stories confirmed we have ample reason to rejoice at God’s faithfulness.
Be at rest once more, O my soul,
for the Lord has been good to you.
