Elder friends

I have friends of all ages, but I especially treasure my friendships with my elder friends who share so much wisdom with me.

I lost a dear friend this week. At 95 years, she lived a very full life. As I reflect on her life and our friendship, these thoughts come to mind…

  • She always believed in me.
  • She supported my writing dreams.
  • She was always so giving.
  • She didn’t sweat the small stuff.
  • She lived life to fullest.
  • She forgave.
  • She lived her Christian faith.
  • She loved her family and friends.
  • She never wavered in her faith.
  • She accepted the things she could not change.

I have so, so many memories. My heart is sad, but as my friend and I prayed with this dear friend just a day before her death, we told her, see you in heaven. I will miss her dearly, but she has left a lasting impact on my life that will continue to inspire me.

As I am reading my devotional this morning, this verse captured my attention and made me think of my dear friend.

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7

Cherish your friends… Especially your elder friends.
