A friend of mine is coming to visit. Upon hearing this I was reminded of a very emotional day in my life. Memories bubbled up like a raging sea. I found myself trying to fight a feeling I had no idea I would remember so dark, so vividly. It felt like a the parting of a sea of good and evil. I found my place, I found my words. Now I have a peace. The peace appeared when I faced my truth regarding that dark day.
Cherish your friends and family. Hold them close. When you have the urge to call them, hug them, pray for them…do it. You have no idea how your presence is needed and what instrument God has asked you to play.
I am blessed. I will cherish the moment this person took a moment for me. It literally was life changing.
