Happy Monday, all! Did the temps warm up for any of you this weekend?? Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous: sunny, a cool breeze, and 70 degrees. (Hard to believe that only one week ago I was wearing The Quilt and traipsing through feet of snow!) I think just about every window in our house was open over the weekend and the fresh air did miraculous things for my soul. I sat in our family room for 2 hours on Sunday, not watching TV, not surfing the web, just sitting and petting Oooj and feeling the warmth soak into my skin. I’ve never been so boring… it was perfect 🙂
Today I am grateful for the beautiful weather weekend we had, and for the sunshine, but I am also grateful for friends who pray for each other. Good friends provide so much for our hearts: laughter, comfort, entertainment, companionship, honesty, love, and so much more but I’m especially feeling so thankful for friends who take the time to pray for me, tell me they’re praying for me, and entrust me with their own private prayer requests. What an honor to pray for a friend! I would love to encourage you to reach out to one of your friends today and ask how you can pray for them. Please note: this is different than asking them, “What can I do for you today?” 😉 Instead ask them, “How can I pray for you today?”
Being able to pray for my friends provides instant sunshine for my soul – and it’s the kind of light that lasts for much longer than a sunny day.
I hope you all find some version of sunshine today, whether it’s actual sunshine, your favorite coffee drink, or a sweet moment with a good, good friend.
