Thanking God for Friendship

Today, I enjoyed a precious afternoon with a dear, longtime friend. This "nurturing" time was a great blessing. I think it's easy for us to forget sometimes that good friendships need nurturing, and energy, and effort to thrive. And it can be a challenge to take the time to do these things.

I encourage you to take the time to reach out to a friend today. Whether it's an old friend you've lost contact with, a new friend you're getting to know, or a longtime friend that you "see but you don't see" (our way to describe paths crossing frequently, but little time for bonding and visiting), take the time today to nurture a friendship. And watch the joy abound.
