Old Friends ...

I was reminded this weekend that the best things in life cannot be bought by silver or gold. Sure, money can get you a lot of things: a big house, a nice car, and even a gorgeous wife or a handsome husband in some circumstances, but money can never buy true friends ... or true love.

Hanging out with the Cornell guys made me realize how blessed I was to have such good friends. I simply love the level of comfort we have around each other and the depth of conversation we can engage in. But most of all, it was the genuine care and the unashamed vulnerability that make this group of guys stand out from the rest. We laughed together, we cried together, we dug deep down in our hearts and shared our pains and struggles, then we built each other up with love and encouragement ... and all this while fixing our eyes on the Lord.

I know it sounds almost too good to be true, and that's why I say I'm blessed beyond all else. I have a feeling that this weekend will even be crazier, I can't wait until the mega-reunion.
