I’m a bit of a loner. I can only be around people for so long. Then I have to get away by myself.
But I’m quick to feel lonely.
That’s a dilemma. I’m a loner who doesn’t like to be alone.
As the years have gone by in our marriage, more and more my wife and I find contentment in being alone—together. To give a different take on Billy Joel’s song, being with my wife is “better than being alone.” (Or did his song say, "drinking alone?" Regardless, being with my wife is better.)
A distinction of the gospel of Luke is all the single connections our Lord made with people—including the one thief. He promise him, “You will be with me in paradise.”
