Today I got an email from my closest and best friend from my high school days. It really came out of nowhere. I had visited him and his family during Christmas but we haven’t exchanged to many emails since so it was nice to see the email in my inbox this morning. But as I opened it and began to read the email it almost brought me to tears. Since I was at work I didn’t want to bring any drama to the workplace so I put it in the back of my mind, but all day I was thinking about it. When I think back to our relationship I remember us being pretty close, but now I realize that we could have had such a stronger bond and that we were both really living for ourselves and not for the Lord Jesus Christ. I am thankful that we both have committed ourselves to fight the good fight and take up our crosses. I look forward to deep conversations with this old friend in the future.
