Friends are hard to come by.
Tonight we had Keith and Kathy Ham over for dinner. They are missionaries our church supports.
I met them when I went to Africa in February. Though the time in February was brief, and our time tonight, obviously, even more brief, we are friends.
Friendship develops over time, but time is not only ticks on a clock. Time is also experiences. Keith was someone who came along side me at a time when life was really tough for me. He was a friend to me. In a moment, he became my friend.
We will never be buddies. We live too far apart. We are, however, friends. I am deeply grateful for Keith and Kathy’s friendship and for their kind visit this evening.
