Trying to live love well through the power of the Everlasting.

Oh, I’m Lovin’ This!

Amy Mitchell wrote a brilliant post entitled, “Friends with Agendas.” What clinched it for me?

Here’s my message to my non-Christian friends:

I chose you because I like you.  We have things in common, we have kids the same age, I find you interesting and fun, and I like being with you.  This is the same way I pick all my friends, regardless of religion.  I didn’t choose you because I’m using you as my personal mission field.  Should you have an interest in talking about spiritual things, I’m here.  But I enjoy your company and I’m glad to hang with you no matter what we talk about.

That’s just the part that I liked the best, but the entire article is worth reading, in my opinion. I liked it all! Amy, thank you. You put words to something that’s been bugging me for a long time.
