Yesterday was a great day! My friends from Arkansas came by and stayed a big portion of the day. I guess I didn’t realize how long it’s been since I got a plain ole hug from a friend. There’s just nothing like it! It was a very refreshing day here in the furnace! It’s was nice to have a break from my norm and sit and visit and grab a pizza with friends.
I think when I get through all this I will make it a point to hug more people, specifically friends! I’m not going go running around Wal-Mart hugging folks I don’t know! I found though a solid truth in the Proverbs that speak of friend’s effect on the countenance. And I must say it also has a positive effect on the heart as well!
One cool thing that happened too was my friend Acra just went to the keyboard and begin to let praise flow out. This was so refreshing as I don’t get to have those times of corporate praise. It was so nice to be able to just sing along with others in praise.
At one point Acra began to just pour out from his heart prayers for Chris. It was a moment I want to treasure for years to come. I don’t know if Chris will remember it or not, but I certainly will.
Now today I will continue my somewhat regular schedule; but my heart will have a little more warmth!
