Exodus 33:11

"And the Lord spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp: but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the tabernacle."
Exodus 33:11

I like the way that this scripture compares our relationship with God to the relationship that we have with our friends.  Moses and God talked to each other... not stiffly or militarily... but as friends.  I think that is a good thing to remember as we go throughout our lives.  We can talk to God as a friend... we can tell him everything that is going on, and admit that we don't always know what to do about it.  We can ask him for advice, or just keep a running commentary of our lives going. :)  We can laugh with him.  Even though the veil is drawn and we can't always see him with our physical eyes, God is there.  He is as close to us as any of our friends... and closer than most. :)  Let's take advantage of the most rewarding of all relationships, and communicate with him... we'll never have a more loyal and good friend than God.
