Paul said of Onesiphorus (2 Timothy 1.16) that he often refreshed Paul, not being ashamed of his chains. There are wonderful things that friends bring, not the least of which is refreshment. We shared a meal yesterday with some friends at their house, around a spread of hamburgers, italian sausage, chips, and all the fixin's (as we say in Texas).
We laughed some more.
We had a great time.
And I went away thinking about Paul and Onesiphorus. I was refreshed. Friends are good like that.
But that's just me thinking thoughts...
