Friendship is a Funny Thing

A couple years ago, I made friends with a gentleman probably older than I, I’m not sure.  He is Filipino.  Communication is difficult because I don’t know his language and he is learning mine.  He and his wife have a wonderful smile.  He has a beautiful family.  I know very little about my friend.  I just know he is my friend by his smile. 
Since my church has opened a 3rd worship service, I lost track of my friend.  I use to see him every Sunday as he left the worship center.  Now I see him very little.  I pick and choose which service I go to by the mood I am in or as circumstance dictate.  I saw him this Sunday.  I gave him my Bible as a gift.  I said, “Give it to someone else as a gift.”  He said he would keep it.  I was honored.
My friend says we will go to visit his church in the Philipines.  I’d like that.  Maybe someday we will.

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".
