I am thankful for new friends. Tonight we were able to help some friends of ours after church. They have just purchased a new home and had some furniture that needed moving in. Well in "payment" of us helping them move the furniture (which hubby actually did ALL the lifting and the girls colored and played) I was able to have some adult conversations with another woman - which happens RARELY! Then they fed us! What could be better then have been fed, have some good fellowship while helping out another 'brother or sister of Christ'?
What makes this even better is that when I first met this couple, I was not sure how well we would get along. They just seemed too different then my husband and I. However, after getting to know them over the last year and a piece, we have formed a very strong relationship.
It just goes to show that you never know what God has in store for you when he puts people in your path. So don't be shy or buck heads with God when he asks you to go beyond your comfort zone and reach out. You could be making a life long friend!
So what are you thankful for? Check out these other thanks.
