Wow.


I am not one that is very good at keeping in touch or always showing my appreciation for people.  It's on my "refining myself" long-term to-do list.  But I checked into the Life In Grace blog today and this C.S. Lewis quote really struck a chord and I wanted to share it.  And then I stumbled on to some incredibly beautiful new fabric by Anna Maria Horner and wanted to share that too :)

“In friendship…we think we have chosen our peers. In reality a few years’ difference in the dates of our births, a few more miles between certain houses, the choice of one university instead of another…the accident of a topic being raised or not raised at a first meeting–any of these chances might have kept us apart. But, for a Christian, there are, strictly speaking no chances. A secret master of ceremonies has been at work. Christ, who said to the disciples, “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you,” can truly say to every group of Christian friends, “Ye have not chosen one another but I have chosen you for one another.” The friendship is not a reward for our discriminating and good taste in finding one another out. It is the instrument by which God reveals to each of us the beauties of others.”
