‘Friend’ was exactly the word on my mind this morn. Specifically, the power of those who invest their time and energy in waving warm power and encouragement over us. Being with real people who exalt and endorse and even question our gifts is a must to keep the gifts from freezing up. Nurturing and growing come from a round of voices from both within and without that notice the state of our gift. The chorus voices nod to the state of gift-holder’s being to encourage, and sometimes to give it comfort.
I don’t know how many friends one soul needs, but certainly, one or two that think your gift is the bread of heaven are a must. DearOne, each of us is deserving of a hallelujah chorus – and the right friends deliver in the right place at the right time!
What will you deliver today?
By the way, thank you for being my friend. 🙂
‘Oil and incense bring joy to the heart, and the sweetness of a friend is better than self-counsel.’ (Proverbs 27:9 HCSB)
