Intentional Fellowship

December 15, 2008

I have often joked that my love language is “quality time”, but with the added suffix, “by myself.”  While I honestly feel that way sometimes, I must admit that there is something about spending time with others that is life giving.

We had our Life Group Christmas party this weekend.  We went out to dinner and then back to our house for games.  We have a really great group of friends and it was great to get together and build relationships with others.

But I thought of how those relationships don’t happen automatically.  It takes time to develop those friendships.  And just like a plant, it must be watered or it will wither and die.

So my first resolution for 2009 is to be more intentional about building my friendships with others.  We get so busy with our lives, that we forget to invite others in.  Some of the best times are just sitting around the living room talking and hanging out.  So don’t be surprised if you get a call from the High’s to come hang out!

    And if we don’t get an invite, should we assume you’d like that plant to die? – angela

    Absolutely not! You are sure to get an invite as long as you are in town.
