We gather together united by geography or employment or history or family
And in that union there comes unity.
Maybe for a season,
Maybe for longer
And maybe, if you are really lucky, some will stick by you for a lifetime.
This is the time of year for gathering them together
Making new ones
Thank God for the blessing of friends
Praise God for the strength of shared experiences,
And most of all, give thanks for the love you receive
In this season
And all through the year
Thanks. Be. To. God
