"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 have been at work. Christ, who said 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." 
-C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

As 2013 unfolds, I'm standing true in the validity of this quote. I'm learning it more and more every day. I've got a good feeling that 2013 is gonna be oh so fine.
