Coffee Connection

I had coffee with a dear friend on Saturday. Her name is Corinna and we haven’t seen each other in several months. Like all good friendships, I am amazed at how we just seem to pick up where we left off – even though we haven’t really talked or been in touch for months. Our ability to stay in that "good friend" mode no matter how long it has been is a great blessing in my life.

It was fun catching up over our favorite overpriced coffee drinks and sharing what's been going on in each other's lives. During our coffee connection, we exchanged stories about dark valleys and caught up on mountain top victories as well. But here’s the rest of the story - coffee is just an excuse to get together. The connection in our friendship is Christ.

Having a close friend is a sacred privilege. I am grateful for someone to pray for who also prays for me. I value having someone to laugh with and cry with – someone who cares when I’m hurting and celebrates with me when I’m rejoicing. I know she feels the same way. Everything that God is doing in both of our lives is better with a friend.

It’s just like God to find a way to make something great (life) even better. He connects us to others in friendship and uses us to strengthen and encourage one another.

As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend. ~ Proverbs 27:17
