The ramblings, meanderings and stream of consciousness of a middleaged, short guy.

The writer in the New Testament of the Bible states that every good and perfect gift comes from God. That means that friends are a gift from God. I, for one, am convinced that's true.

My family and I spent the evening with our friends the Shapiros. They are such a cool family. Their lives are filled with generosity and kindness. We had dinner together. Talked about life, the future, ordinary stuff. We laughed together and played together. It was such an enjoyable evening.

I'm trying to figure out what we did to merit such warmth and kindness. The answer is: nothing. They are a gift from God. The Shapiros are proof that God loves me and my family in ways I can't understand.

Later this evening, I went to see my friend Dave. He is probably one of the best friends I have had since High School. Again I am reminded that his friendship is a gift. I didn't earn it, deserve it or coerce it. It simply is. For some that may not be proof of God's existence or love. For me, it is a gentle reminder. And I am grateful for the remembrance.
