As I picked up my morning newspaper, my neighbors from down the way passed by in their pickup, giving me a friendly beep on the horn. I smiled and waved back. This pandemic isolation has not affected me as it has these outgoing, extroverted friends. My happy place is in my comfy chair with a stack of good books and no distractions or interruptions. This is not something to be proud of; it’s the nature with which I was born. And, it can be a problem. Yes, as Christians we need to spend alone time with God, but we also need to interact with others. Along with being an active part of the body of Christ, we need to be open and hospitable and friendly. I’m thankful God has blessed me with neighbors who won’t allow me to be a hermit and are continually teaching me how to be friendly.
