GOD PAUSE I remember several years ago hearing a preacher say that friends are put in life for a season and a reason. God brings them close to you to be a support and encouragement in your darkest days. But then their work is done and your relationship is somewhat different. Nothing bad. Just different. And its okay. Solomon says in Proverbs 18:24 that “Some friendships don't last long. But there is one loving friend who is joined to your heart closer than any other.” Dear Papa, we are so grateful for the friends you do bring into our lives. Such blessings each one is to us! And thanks for being our very best friend. Amen and amen.
