When Friends Meet
It had been on the calendar since before Christmas and finally the day was here. Three of my dearest friends were coming to the flat. Two had already seen our second-floor, downtown flat but one would be seeing it for the first time.
I like to watch the reaction.
We chatted and then went downtown for lunch. The conversation was engaging.
I’m going to share with you, dear readers, what I learned from my friends!
From the elder…left us all pondering this thought, Does Holy Spirit rest over your home so others find rest and safety there?
From HM…left me speechless as she shared three intense visions with us. Whew.
From the young one…how much fun she is having running her B and B! She and her husband live in a huge home and they are now empty-nesters so she turned the three bedrooms into lodging! She told us about some of her guests and how blessed she is by “most” of them!
I learned we are all bun-less! Three of us had burgers and left the buns to the side. And, we are all generous tippers.
After lunch, we went through the downtown area and the elder mentioned the little shoppe “Saved From the Dump.” The young one, and the driver, impressed us all with her excellent parallel skills. The shoppe was a delight (it always is) – each one of us made purchases and off we headed to the flat. Coffee and tea all around.
We talked more. We sipped our cuppas and then 3 o’clock struck. Off they went, northward bound back to where we used to live.
Good friends are God’s bonus presents – I have many and I consider myself extremely blessed.
Right now, I’m admiring the pretty, blingy wall lamp I bought for over the twin bed in the loft – it had been “saved from the dump.”
Come to think of it…so was I – saved from the dump, I mean.
Since we have now been justified by His blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through Him! Romans 5.9 (NIV)
Saved from the Dump and so much more!
