True Friendship ~ A Flower Which Can’t Be Bought.

FRIENDSHIP ~ When a friend comes for a visit and the weather permits, I ask if they would like to go for a walk.20180314_155558.jpg
Tracie, my writer friend is an inspiration to me. She juggles writing workbooks for a living, driving to another state to visit her parents, writes fiction for fun, devotionals for inspiration and is part of two writing association, plus a new grandmother. Oh, and she quilts and reads a lot. And, she’s married by the way.20180314_095413.jpg
She must have at least three stoves running with every burner busy. And she does it all so well. She also makes time to exercise twice a day. My hero.
While Traci and I walked we visited and finally I took out my phone and snap a picture. She said, “I was wondering when you will be taking pictures.” She knows me well.20180314_155740.jpg
There were a couple of pictures I took that she asked why I took them. They were of cow bones on the path. Left overs from a coyote I presumed. I told her, when something comes to my attention I take a picture, later God will give me an Idea to write about.20180314_160046.jpg
“Make me to hear joy and gladness and be satisfied; let the bones which You have broken rejoice.” Psalm 51:8
Something from Ezekiel 3 with dry bones will be included in my writing along with the bones I found in Alaska on a Sunday exploration. Those bones, I believe were from a moose. By the way, Tracie, the idea is coming. I have a feeling that another set of bones are on a future path of mine before I do sit and write.
Thank you, my friend, for taking time to spend several hours with me. God lifted my spirit with your visit. May He bless you with more energy.20180314_094545.jpg Keep smiling, Traci it’s contagious.
God colors my days purple through my girlfriends.
That’s how He keeps my heart smiling.

Grasp Time And Be A Spring Day


“Oil and perfume rejoice the heart; so does the sweetness of a friend’s counsel that comes from the heart.” Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

Give a kind words, make time for a coffee date, lunch meeting, spontaneous gathering, phone hug, Facebook glimpse or a walk-talk fellowship, but most important send a prayer.

Without your refreshing moments in your friend’s life, their nights will be longer, rainy days much darker and their soul would be malnourished from the lack of girlfriend companionship.

Friendship times are not only food for the soul, but gold nuggets of encouragement which will be treasured for a life time.

By the way, words are not always necessary, but your involvement is.

Go ahead and grasp some time and be a spring day in a friend’s life.
