I wasnt' supposed to go to work today, but I was bored at home so off I went. I didn't get much accomplished, but I was there to take a very important call from someone very special. Someone I haven't spoken to in years but often think of. Someone who's pictures are around my house, on the fridge, on the inside of our computer desk, you know what I mean. And so Lisa called. Lisa - the young girl who was like a younger sister to me many, many moons ago. What a joy it was to reconnect with her again.
Sometimes when we're feeling down, and we don't even know what we need, God provides just the right thing. People have been asking me how they can help me since my mom's been in hospital. It's comforting to know they're thinking of me, but I don't know what to tell them. What can they do to help? I don't even know what to do for myself these days. I'm numb, just blank, mind wandering onto insignificant, trivial things. So what do I need....
And she called.
And I felt so lifted up after our talk... all the way from England, the place where I feel most at home where I bond with the atmosphere.
Lisa, it was so good to speak to you today. You reminded me of times that were fun and happy. Don't just breeze into my life and then disappear again. Let's not do that again!
Thank you Lord for that encouragement today.
