Just taking a few moments this morning to recognize the blessing that friends are in our lives.
My wife (who happens to be my best friend) and I have been fortunate enough to spend a lot of time with friends these past few weeks. An annual gathering of folks I’ve known since the late 90s, a weekend visit by a couple we know from church, another weekend visit by my wife’s friends from many years ago, playing tennis with some good folks I know, stopping in at a friend’s going away party and catching up with other friends in that group, folks who have stopped in along with some of our kids’ friends.
Friends are just a real blessing, aren’t they? Every conversation is unique yet every one is the same, in that, it is a potential memory being made. It’s just nice to be able to be yourself and enjoy the company of others at the same time. Hooray for friends! Thanks, God.
Have a great day.
Hey, everyone. Just a post to get a little conversation going. What’s new with you? Good, not so good, whatever it might be. Please feel free to comment below. I’d love to hear from you.
Have a great day!
The conversation came up last night about goals, when it comes to fulfilling God’s purpose in our lives. The goal I talked about is wanting to spend more time in prayer. Just, being able to have that closeness with God and maintain a conversation with Him.
Found this article this morning, and it has some great suggestions.
5 Battle-Tested Ways to Pray without Ceasing
From the article:
The directive to “pray without ceasing” means that we are ever present with God throughout the entire day. We are continually interacting with Him in prayer as we move from task to task. When we face a challenge, we ask for His assistance. As we experience a blessing, we thank Him for His favor.
It’s sort of like being on the phone, and we never hang up. We acknowledge His presence throughout every single day.
Good stuff. Click the link above to read the rest of the article. Just some simple, practical ways to keep the conversation going with God throughout your day.
It’s already come in handy for me, on my drive to work this morning. Go figure, the commute was much more peaceful than usual. 🙂
Have a great day.
