Without forethought or announcement, a spark suddenly ignites between two unsuspecting strangers. A chance encounter, or predestined event, either way, it is like a breath of fresh air or the feel of cool rain on your face after a long season of drought. Simply put, there is no need for friendship to be introduced, for its possibilities are not bound by protocol, or ever forced. No balloons or extravagant invitations are necessary. However, in that moment of truth, an engraving is forever tattooed on your heart and a new friend moves in.
It should be considered the 8th wonder of the world.
Miraculous because this new confidant can already finish your sentences, laughs and weeps at the exact moments you do and helps you take out the old baggage from your past. In other words, they fit like the comfortable slippers you’ve never tired of.
My question is this. Would a waterfall cascading down a mountainside be as brilliant if there was no one special to share it with? Or the sea rolling back and forth, according to its Divine conductor. Surely its Creator did not selfishly hide it away as part of his private collection.
I believe its true value is discovered in the sharing of its beauty between those we love.
Friendship is that spark that ignites the heart, making it shine even brighter! An incandescent life.
