Well, I was so excited and honored that she would want to stay at my house. I spent the whole day getting the room ready, praying over the room, writing down words for her and making little gifts for her. It was such a joy for me!!
She came over around dinner time with her little baby and I sent her straight upstairs to read the word I had wrote out for her and just spend some time praying, while I watched her baby downstairs. Clint watched the children so she and I could go out to dinner. Then, when we got home, she went back up into her little haven and prayed and spent more time alone with God.
This morning, the Lord woke me up extra early (which never happens!). I made her coffee and cinammon rolls and brought it up to her on a pretty tray. I wanted her to have the full "bed and breakfast" effect!
It was such a blessing for me to do this for my friend! I had a rough week last week, struggling with feeling depressed and overwhelmed. Through this experience, I was reminded that the best way to lift your spirit and feel closer to God is to help someone else.
Are you down today? Are you sad? Ask God to show you someone that needs some love and encouragement. As you help someone else, I know that you will feel better in your own heart. :)
