Spirit Friends

This morning my heart is warmed and blessed.  I have been communicating through Facebook with a woman that in all truth I barely know.  I used to work in a retirement community where her father lived.  I met her and of course, interacted with her regarding her father.  I watched her minister to many of the residents and give her time to provide a weekly church service (for lack of a better description).

She was always cheerful and gracious.  She loves the Lord, I love the Lord.  Instant connection.
I lost touch with her eventually.  I left and went to another job.  Her father had to live in a nursing home in his last days.

But in the last while, I found her through Facebook - and another Spirit friend. 

I have several Spirit friends - people God has placed in my life for a short while, usually through ministry or work.  Not people I have gotten to spend a lot of time with or go to church with. I don't live in the same town, or even the same state with these ladies. I don't talk to them everyday. People who it is plain, the Holy Spirit in them reached out to Himself in me.  If you have not experienced, I really don't know how to explain. They add to my life in an amazing way.

I am sorry to say, I have not experienced this with everyone in my own church body.  There are some with whom I can never seem to connect at all - no connection - no matter how hard I try.  Troubling.   But that's another topic.

I love my Spirit friends.  I can shoot them a prayer request - and know they will cover me in prayer.  I can share just about anything.  In fact, just saying hello, discussing problems in the world - warms my soul through and through.

Thank you, Spirit Friends.  Thank You, Holy Spirit.

Belinda, you are truly blessed! I am sure your Spirit friends are as blessed as you in this relationship. Wonder if we could all have those if we could (or would) reconize them. Blessings for you this day Mom

A lot of us who are under constant pressure tend to eat too much
and do not take good care of their bodies.

If you weigh yourself everyday or every other day and see that you've gained weight, your motivation may go down and you'll be likely to give up.
