I needed this time with friends more than I realized.
One of my dear friends opened up her home and blessed the handful of us in attendance with a wonderful lunch. I enjoyed more than the meal, however.
The laughter was healing. The conversation was encouraging. The company was a blessing. God’s presence was most definitely there.
I soaked every bit of it in.
I am able to be myself with these women, and I appreciate that more than ever.
I woke this morning with my mind full of great moments from yesterday. And I thanked God for each one.
Today I am completely grateful for all of my girlfriends.
So why am I sharing all of this with you?
Friends, we all need those people in our lives who breathe belief in us. We need those who we can be ourselves with. We need those who will pray for us, who will support us, who will be there for us.
Friends, we need our friends.
Today, my intent is to go out of my way to bless those in my life who are my friends. To thank them for being in my life, and to encourage their heart. To begin to reach out to each one personally and to tell them how much they mean to me.
I can’t possibly do this all in one day, as God has more than blessed me with many friends. But I will begin with a few today.
