LOST FRIENDS & RENEWED FRIENDS


There are times in life when you just have to accept that people you care enormously for no longer seem to want to be part of your life. There can be no apparent reason for it (and sometimes there are plenty of reasons I know), as I have recently experienced, but there is no choice for you either. You simply have to accept what the other person has decided to do, let them go and who knows, perhaps some day they might be interested in renewing the friendship again. In this case, maybe not ~ but who knows.

The loss has been a huge blow to me and to be honest, it has been a major disappointment for me in the person concerned. I am incredibly saddened and feel really badly hurt by what has occurred. But what can be done? I have exhausted all avenues in trying to correct the situation – nothing more can be done. It is time to move on.

What a joy in contrast however, when friendships that were really important, but for one reason or another they seemed to fall apart, are renewed. I have had the joy of having a close friendship renewed just recently also and this has meant a real lot to me. This person has been a tremendous friend to be in the past and will be so again. Thank the Lord for his goodness – He does work in mysterious ways as the saying goes.
