Make New Friends....

One summer when I was little, my mom helped at a local Girl Scout camp.  My sister and I went along as my mom volunteered.  I remember learning a song that week that went like this.

Make new friends
Keep the old
One is silver
And the other gold.

This song hits home to me as we count down to our upcoming PCS (military move).  While at each duty station, we make friends and build relationships with people.  Some of those individuals become like family to us.  And then it happens.  You get new orders and it's time to move again.

I know many people in the military who will never say "Goodbye."  Instead they say "See you later." 

There are those of you that I will miss as we move on.  There are those who I went to high school with that I will get to see again, once we are back in the states.  And there are the new friends that I continue to meet and will meet in the future. 

You are all precious to me and I thank God for you.  So whether you are a silver or a gold friend, know that you are appreciated. 

Philippians 1: 3-4
I thank my God every time I remember you. 
In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy.
