Great times

I was talking with a friend the other day about great times.  We were reminiscing on some of our best days together.

We talked about canoe trips, Royals games, softball games and the like.  He asked, "do you suppose it was the place that made it great or the people?"

I think that we all know the answer to that question.  He knew the answer, even as the question came out of his mouth.

Sure MLB stadiums are great places.  Rivers to canoe are amazing.  Enjoying sports is a blessing.  We get excited about the things that we do.   We are excited about a vacation, an outing, a dinner out.  But at the end of the day, it is not so much about where you are, it is all about who you are with.

Look very carefully at who you are journeying with in this life.  the people that you surround yourself with are among God's greatest gifts.

It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.

To be sure, getting to be those friends can help you forget the world, especially in the turbulent world we live in. Happy for you that you have the treasure of so many good friends. And wishing you more time to be with them. Glad a long time one came to see you.
