Old Friends

Last Saturday my wife and I were invited to an old friends 40 birthday bash. (Really my wifes friend) But many years ago a group of us used to hang out together. Most of us met when we were single and gradually got married off. We all sort of went our separate ways.

20 years has seen us all change so much, expanding waist lines and receding hairlines were very much on view. These sort of events are always interesting in that you enter fully into a 20 year old relationship. Though you and the person have not changed in any way. When the truth of the matter is that we have all changed dramatically in the inside as well as the all to obvious outside features.

You have so many expectations growing up as to what you want to accomplish in life. I spent some time thinking of how things have developed.

1. I have a better relationship with my God.
2. I have a fantastic relationship with my wonderful wife.
3. I have 2 great kids.
4. I am fulfilling my dream of pasturing a great church with some great fiends.

I could not have wished for anything better.

It was good to talk to old friends. Even though we don't see each other very often now I pray that their lives will give them the fulfillment that I am having on this great adventure.
