My friend Maribeth (who's also Leo's preschool teacher) came over today with a home-cooked meal for me. We sat and talked a little bit (well, as much as I could with my hoarse voice) and then she prayed for me. It was so sweet! And she made one of my favorite things!! Homemade Macaroni and Cheese!! Yummy. What a wonderful comfort food!!
It really is the small things like this that show the love of Christ, you know? Bringing over a meal, offering to babysit so mom can get a nap, or just sitting and being a shoulder to cry on.
God has sent me some wonderful friends and sisters-in-Christ that have been that kind of friend for me. I want to be that kind of a friend, too! I want to think of ways that I can bless others that are going through a rough patch.
Help me, Lord, to think of others more than I think of myself.
What are some ways that you have been blessed by the kindness of a friend lately?
