The Language of the Heart
While I am thankful for gifts that are given to me and I know that all of us are excited to receive presents, I am more grateful for the love in my life and the time I spend with friends and family. Many times in life we tend to focus on the wrong things. We get so busy with our everyday lives, we forget to spend quality time with those we love. Our friendships have turned to hour lunches and rushed dinners. And, our families only come together at weddings and funerals. We were created for companionship. We were created to love one another.
I know that there are people around all of us right now who need an encouraging word, a thoughtful prayer, or a special touch. They are hurting inside and you have the words they need to hear to lead them to healing. You have that funny joke to make them laugh! You have the hug they've been needing all month long!
Or, maybe they just need someone to talk about the game with? Maybe they need some place to watch the Superbowl? Or, maybe she wants to go see the newest "chick flick" or someone to get her nails done with? It doesn't have to be anything special, sometimes it's the little things we do. It's taking the time to be there. It's taking time to be present; and, through those precious girls, I've found that sometimes it's the best gift that you can ever give someone.
