Aging and Wisdom

I've noticed as I get older, that people of and from the past (friends, family, neighbors, co-workers) seem to increase in value.

I believe for the majority of us (baby boomer generation and older) we paid no attention to the obits when we were in our teens, even twenties. However, those passing on are more our age now as we scan the pages.

Each time I see someone I know listed, those that are left behind mean even more to me. My generation is decreasing. I can imagine how my mother and father feel. Maybe even like a stranger in their own land some days. My father is one of 7 siblings. Today he is one of two. My mother had no siblings.

I experienced something very heartwarming today from a friend of 40+ years. We haven't laid eyes on each other probably since our school days. However, Facebook has made it possible to communicate as often as one desires.

We have some memorable Facebook conversations, debates, and/or differences over the course of time, however, the last one was one I'd rather forget.

I wasn't angry, and I didn't want to admit, and still haven't to my friend, but it really hurt me so. To the point that my flesh said, "I don't care if we ever talk again." But my flesh lied to my soul. I thought I was bothered by our differences in opinion but I was really bothered, more so by the result of our differences.

We didn't talk every day, but the door was always wide open to do so, or even comment on each other posts. But I felt the door was closed now. And I don't know why it bothered me as much it did. But it did.

My friend didn't know, but earlier today I checked to see if they had closed our friendship by deleting me as a Facebook friend. (My how times have changed for the ability to close a friendship). No, we were still friends!

Then I received a pm. As I read it, my eyes watered a little. Not necessarily because my friend apologized, but because the Holy Spirit has worked on both of us to not let our souls rest until the wrong was made right.

This blog could be about how important it is to be nice. Or about a story with a happy ending between two friends. It could even be about a lesson on how to handle differences.

What it is really about is that when you have a true relationship with God, He gives you the GIFT of the Holy Spirit. The Bible says that the Holy Spirit will lead and guide you into all truth.

Thank you, my friend. All is well!
