But why do we have a lot of “best friends?” That thought had just ocurred to me when a “best friend” just called me a few days ago to tell me that he just got out of the seminary (no, he just took his vows) after two years of being cloistered and now, he’ll be staying in a place where I can readily “access” him again…
It get’s better. He’s now a Jesuit Brother and I’ve seen him deliver a “sharing” in a noon mass last Tuesday. My, how he has become “better.”
During the two years that he was “in,” he was not aware of what I’ve been through until a few months back. Hence, he was not around when I needed him the most…
For that, I had my other “best friend” who ironically migrated to Davao a few months back.
With this, I’m just thinking. What a wonderful God we have! He has NEVER let me (or us) down. When I lost my “best friend” to Davao, He gave me back my other “best friend.” And I think, He NEVER WILL.
And with this, I now realize that there can never be one “best friend.”
Oxymoronic. Illogical. But I’ll take it.
