it’s the weather. it’s the fact that everyone in our house seems to be sick (which means throwing fits). it’s the short days and the new neighborhood.
but whatever it is, it’s no secret that come last friday afternoon, i was spent. i knew what i needed was some adult conversation with my girlfriends.
book club was scheduled and on the drive there, i was praying for encouragement and honestly, something like a sign that God had not forgotten me in my despair.
from the second i stepped into book club, i felt it (the gray fog) start to lift.
a cupcake, hours of laughter and many heartfelt discussions later, i was starting to really feel encouraged and like God had answered my prayers.
but friends, that was just the beginning.
on Saturday, my friend sarah wanted to come out to see my antique booth and go out to lunch (such a treat!).
and then i got a call from another friend who wanted to offer to bring dinner for my family this week!
i was like, ok God, wow, you not only heard me, you are lavishing your love on me.
sunday, we were invited to lunch with our dear friends and their kids and then sunday night we got to celebrate a birthday with again, our dear, dear friends.
i barely could contain how loved and how full my heart was with the knowledge that my Lord saw me and knew my needs so intimately. and to my friends who are so faithful to follow the Lord’s leading—you don’t know how much it meant to me this particular weekend. thank you!
