Good Friends, Good Cheer

DOGS-121912-002

A friend like the one above gives love unconditionally, this little guy loves to play and have fun, doesn’t hold a grudge and is always happy to see you.  Everybody ought to have a friend like that!

Of course human friends require a little more careful care and feeding!

This year I’ve been involved in a church Christmas program.  We’ve been practicing for weeks now, and we all seem to be together several days a week in one way or another.  I’ve really had the opportunity to get to know several people better, and to appreciate older friends even better; in short this program has already been quite a blessing.

You see, I’ve found that a group of Christians getting together to work for the purpose of glorifying God and proclaiming the good news of the birth of our Lord is quite a team-building exercise.  Oh, there are a few rough moments when something just isn’t quite going according to plan, but through the entire process, we are all being built into the Body of Christ. More than that, there seems to be much more of a sense of oneness than ever before, and as far as I can see, people are glad to see one another.  It is quite interesting to see how people act when they are working together to achieve the purposes for which we were all created; to give glory to God and to spread the good news to others.

Hey gang, maybe we should do more of this!

  1. “Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies.” – Aristotle

  2. We could take a lesson from “man’s best friend.” ; )

    What a blessing to enjoy Christian community, striving toward the same goal and loving each other through the rough spots. Very encouraging!
