January is slow outside, so I seem to buzz inside. I have been following the “Clutter Free January” series on YouTube and find GREAT inspiration within these four walls.
Books I have been enjoying this month:
- In Due Time devotional by: Caroline Harries
- Finding Holiness in the Suburbs by: Ashley Hales
- Dear Kitchen Saints by: Mrs. Connie Hulquist
- Morning and Evening devotional by: Charles Spurgeon
I went to visit a friend from college who has been going through a hard time. AJ had to go into work for a few hours, so it worked out to drop him off, drive the 2 hours to Dallas, have brunch, and turn around and drive home. I don’t have a lot of girlfriends here in Oklahoma, so “girl time” is rare for me. It was such a time of encouragement. We sat just outside of the indoor atrium and got to enjoy the ferns with our coffee. 🙂 A kindred spirit is a precious gift. Someone who knows you for who you are, someone you have history with. Someone you don’t have to explain yourself to, someone who gets you. That is her. 🙂 I am so grateful for her friendship and was so thankful we could connect after a year of being apart.
Who are those people in your life that you find to be a kindred spirit? When was the last time your expressed your appreciation for them. Maybe you need to write them a letter. Give them a call. Maybe meet up with them to safely enjoy a brunch together. Friendships are an incredible gift.
One thought on “Black Beans & Brunch”
I am lucky to have a person like that in my life. She’s wonderful. We are now getting our group back together on zoom. I’ve heard of the dear kitchen saints book…maybe from Coffee with Kate on YouTube? I tried the Clutter free January but didn’t get past the first week. It was a good idea to give a week for each area. How’s it coming along for you?
