Sweet Companionship

June 12, 2020



Every season of life offers gifts of companionship. 


As humans our deepest need is love, companionship holds the hand of love.


They are a pair. 


I have learned to trust and embrace gifts from God to meet my need of companionship, not holding back, just in case something happens.


I have learned even though it is a risk to be fully present with the companion, self-protection risks a life of half-hearted living. 


Sweet companions show up in my life in many forms:


A deep conversation with my adult children.


Coffee time with a close friend.


Phone call with my mom.


Watching a movie with a pet by my side.


Journaling and prayer with God as the sun rises.


It seems as though the seasons in my life right now are changing rapidly. 


Sometimes I feel like I can’t quite keep up, sometimes I feel like I want the season to linger and sometimes to end. 


The comfort for me in any season comes from sweet companionship. 


It is like honey for my soul.


It is a well of unconditional love. 


It is a reflection of God’s presence. 


It is a gift.


When challenging seasons come my way, and I am feeling alone, I shift my mind to the list of my sweet companions past and present. 


This past week I savored the 13 year season with my sweet companion Peyton, our golden retriever. Our season with him has ended, but the memories live on. 


I am dedicated to not only being more aware of life’s sweet companions, but also becoming one for others. 


I can look forward to the seasons ahead for both.
