1 Samuel 20:17
New Living Translation (NLT)

17 And Jonathan made David reaffirm his vow of friendship again, for Jonathan loved David as he loved himself.

 So, you've probably heard or seen that little poem about some people being in your life for a season, reason, etc, etc.  Well, I tend to get emotionally attached to everyone.  This presents a problem when it turns out that person was one of those just passing through!  Then begins the process of unwrapping my emotions...which is sometimes very difficult since that person is already long gone!  I have experienced this enough times now to be a little more careful with my emotions and expectations.   So, with my tendency towards attachement, I have to say, I've never really cared for that little poem.  I don't like goodbye's.  I don't like loss.  I don't like untangling my emotions!  Seasonal friends!?

 I am thankful to be blessed with lifelong friends.  The kind that are with you season after season.  When you're up or down.  Who overlook it when you have a bad day.  Who aren't jealous when things are good.  Who care enough to find out who I am...and then still want to be my friend!  Thank you, friends!

  1. That's a good one. People who still want to be friends after they find out what you are really like. That's true friends. I have some of those. Jesus is the best example. He loved me when I was a sinner. Thank God!
