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.
