  1. Thank you for your post!! I have always liked the titles of wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend. “It is not titles that honor men, but men that honor titles.” Niccolo Machiavelli

  2. Hi Rob! Been a long time! Thanks for the wonderful blog this morning. Found you thanks to The Military Chaplain email newsletter… Pictures of Oxford took me back to my Croughton assignment and my favorite spot in England next to Bury St Edmunds :-)

    Your reflection on titles is so very close to home for me. Haven’t looked back once since choosing to retire as a Ch, Lt Col! Pastor, friend, Dad are my favorite titles along with sweetheart to my beautiful and faith-filled fiancée whom God brought to me and worked through to bring me out of a period of personal darkness.

    Be well and be blessed my friend as you continue to serve :-)

    1. You stumbled onto Mere Inkling right when I began blogging, and it’s wonderful how our friendship has grown just through reading one another’s words. Thanks for the cloak… unfortunately I mislaid it and still trying to find it!

  3. I couldn’t agree more with you and CSL about friendship. It’s the point. God had friends before us (the most famous and longest continuously running small group ever – very small – only Three) and wanted to invite us in (that sounds way too much like I’m saying we get to be part of the Trinity, and I’m definitely not proposing that! But I assume you know what I mean.) And I think that’s the mission we’re on, the one called the “Friendship Quest,” where we’re making friends with God – that is, becoming better friends with God and going out with him to make other friends (for him and for us).

    1. I understand, and agree with you. Friendship that’s even deeper, right . . . since we are actually inviting the guests at the Marriage Banquet to become part of the family itself!
