Last night, a friend of mine invited me to his house for soup.  I wasn’t anticipating an invite, but I was like “awesome,” especially since I’m a sucker for chili.

There was such great conversation…even a recap of the musical Les Mis, that, by the way, I did not initiate…but since it was known that I knew many of the lyrics, I was enlisted to sing parts of the songs while another friend talked about the storyline.

I’m really looking forward to getting to know the friend who hosted the shindig. We’re having lunch next week and I think he’s gonna be a great encouragement.

I also got to talk to another friend of mine and get to know him better just before the party while we were studying for our covenant theology paper.  It was wonderful to talk to him and to even get to meet his wife, who came to the party.

I have to figure out how I’m ever going to do things when people aren’t around.  Like tonight…I’m really struggling to actually get any reading and studying done tonight.  I think a MickeyD’s run (pumpkin pies, 2 for a dollar!) is in order since I’ve been reading for quite a while.  But I hate doing anything alone.  I have no idea how I ever made it through undergrad. 🙂

I will say this, though.  I’ve found so many great friends at Covenant.  The ones I’ve talked to about my sin and struggles have been so encouraging to me…I definitely don’t deserve friends like these, but I thank God every day for them.  This is perhaps just a small reason why the bible never talks about the Christian life being one lived in isolation.  Without my brothers to surround and love me, I don’t think I could do life at all.  They are a blessing and I hope I can bless them back in some small way, but even more than that, I pray that God would bless them abundantly for having loved and listened to me.
