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.
