Festivals are awesome. This weekend, I went to the Cinco De Mayo festival on Saturday morning and the Festival of Nations of Sunday. The Friday preceding the festivals, I had family night.
I love family night. Right now, I’m greatly appreciating the importance of friendship. Not just friendship, though. I’m talking about the knitted heart, likeminded, like spirited, challenging, comforting, I’d kill for you kind of friendship.
Family night is my chance to connect with people who I’ve known and have known me for as long as I’ve lived.
My best friends are scattered through out the world, but I have my family. These weekly gatherings are glue and life to me.
I still miss my friends, though.
While missing my friends, I’ve mediated on Proverbs 18:4:
“A man who has friends must himself be friendly, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.”
Building community, specifically man community is something I love to do. So I need to be friendly. That’s specifically why I’ve planned a man night coming up (if you’re interested, send me a message).
A good friend is something worth fighting for. Every experience, success and adventure is greatly highlighted when you’re doing life with the people that are life.
If you want to hear an awesome sermon about this, here’s one from my pastor. When it’s all over, nothing is more important than your relationships. Check it out HERE (I’ll put a link here it is online).
Anyways, here are a few pictures from the Cinco De Mayo Festival.
