Friendship

Whatcha Readin’ Wednesdays!

Whatcha Readin’ Wednesdays!

This week’s book was a fun little book to read. Again, I was honored to be on the Launch Team for this book as well. The book is: When You Find Another – a conversation about friendship…among friends” by Kay Harms. This book is a sweet book and would make a nice gift for a friend. It also offers questions in the back that you could make it a nice study book with a few ladies, friends or not. Maybe invite your neighbors over and it may open up a path to a new friendship!

She quotes C. S. Lewis with this:

“Friendship is born at the moment when one person says to another, ‘What? You, too? I thought I was the only one!'”

The author, Kay, illustrates the types of friendships we have by using the analogy of apples. First she describes friendship in the first chapter. Then she takes the next few chapters to describe Red Delicious, Green Delicious, Golden Delicious and Bad Apple Friends. Her description of each friendship vs. apple is quite clever! I am not going to spoil the book by giving you the actual definition she chose for each apple, but I will tell you this: I have many Red Delicious Apples, a few Green Delicious Apples, a small handful of Golden Delicious Apples and I no longer have Bad Apples in my Basket of Friends! You’ll just have to get the book and find out what that all means!

Reading the book made me stop and ponder more than what kinds of “Apple” Friends I have. It made me think through what kind of “Apple” Friend I am to others around me in my friendship circle. I truly hope I am not a Bad Apple Friend.

Happy reading!

Friendship is Heart Warming Indeed!

 

 

I’m so excited to join in the fun on a new Link-up. Beginning today, ASK GOD TODAY MINISTRIES will be doing a link up entitled – WARM HEARTED WEDNESDAY LINK UP. We will be providing a prompt each time to help you with your post. Take the time you need to write what’s on your heart. I so hope I’ll see you over there!

Today’s prompt:  “Share a recent experience that you are thankful for.”

That’s really a tough one! It’s not because there hasn’t been anything to be thankful for recently, it’s that which one do I pick to write about! I think I’ll have to go with the one experience that was the “most” recent!

We were in South Carolina for the Thanksgiving holiday week visiting our daughter (which we were very thankful for). But the end of the week before leaving to go home, I had the privilege to meet up with a few of the ladies from my writing team with Ask God Today Ministries. Most of us had met up in Nashville at the beginning of the month for a 2016 planning retreat (which I can’t wait to share more about that!!). So to then end the month with lunch with several of them was so much fun.

It warms my heart so much to be serving on this team with ALL of these women. These women are so encouraging and inspiring and I just love talking with and being around them all. Their love for God overflows into all their conversations!

So to be able to grab lunch with three of them this past Monday just topped off a great week. Made my thankfulness meter hit the top!

We chatted a mile a minute and laughed almost to the point of snorting!

I’m very thankful for each of the women I serve with this on this team. And I’m thankful that we were able to wiggle out some time this holiday to catch up with each other.

And of course – there’s always time for being silly together…
