What a sweet day this has been. Yesterday started out great and came tumbling down midday. Isn’t it amazing how that happens? I was minding my own business and BAM, the enemy found a way to get to me. It’s the same way he always uses.
So, I am thankful today has come and I have been blessed by sweet friends who just wanted to hang out. One came to visit. Two emailed encouraging words. And five planned a belated birthday visit (complete with festive party hats) in a local coffee shop this afternoon where they graced me with a homemade cookbook complete with pictures of the group and delicious handwritten recipes from each of them. Cute. Absolutely cute!
I’m oozing with gratefulness to God for the treasure of sweet godly women friends. Most of the time, they are just not aware (you reading this, too) of how timely their encouragement is. God is so good that way. When there are opportunities to minister to one another with a kind word, a thoughtful help, a supportive prayer, or whatever He tells us to do, I pray we would just DO IT! Today’s visits have been a soothing balm to yesterday’s sad spirit.
The week has flown by and where has the time gone? It’s just part of getting back in the groove for me. Anybody else struggling with that?
The weekend will afford me some time to play catch up, so that’s what I’ll be doing.
I hope the rest of you have a wonderful weekend! Hug yourselves!
