I had dinner with an old friend last night. There are some people you can go without seeing for ten years and still feel like nothing has changed. There's comfort in those friendships, like an old blanket or a worn sweater.

When life gets confusing, friends who have known you for a long time can help give you perspective. They will be honest with you, like no one else. You may not always like what they have to say, but deep down, you know they're probablly right.

Everyone should have friends like that.

Have you ever felt like God was heaping blessings on you? That's how I feel. I feel extremely overwhelmed at how kind and generous my God is. I feel like things are going too well, like I am just holding my breath waiting for another trial to come, waiting for something bad to happen. But for the moment I am going to try to enjoy the torrent of good things the Lord seems to be giving me. And I am going to purposefully remember to be thankful and to constantly tell God how grateful I am to Him. And I will seek to be dependent on Him in the easy times as I am in the rough times.

I am so unworthy of the grace God bestows on me everyday. And each good thing He gives me is a reminder of how God uses the unworthy, the low, the weak--that is me!

Sure, I have my moments, things are still hard. But I serve a good God.
