I was reading today and I came across Psalm 61. I found it to be encouraging and thought that others might enjoy it as well.
Hear my cry, O God,listen to my prayer;
from the end of the earth I call to you
when my heart is faint.
Lead me to the rock
that is higher than I,
for you have been my refuge,
a strong tower against the enemy.
Let me dwell in your tent forever!
Let me take refuge under the shelter of your wings! Selah
For you, O God, have heard my vows;
you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
Prolong the life of the king;
may his years endure to all generations!
May he be enthroned forever before God;
appoint steadfast love and faithfulness to watch over him!
So will I ever sing praises to your name,
as I perform my vows day after day.

Today I enjoyed the company of my two sisters-in-law and another female friend. Not to mention my two daughters (just a baby and toddler but female none the less) and as a stay-at-home mom it was refreshing. Oh the mischief and OH the giggling! Now why is that? Why is it, that when a group of gals get together we giggle like a...well, like a bunch of school girls?
No nothing was accomplished, just the drinking of hot beverages and the consumption of food, but still, it did feel productive. I guess spending time with a group of people whom you feel comfortable around and sharing a good laugh...even if occasionally it is at the expense of others....sorry Steph...:), is still an acceptable way to spend a day.
In this day and age of go, go, go and "time means money", one must stop and smell the roses. For though many would consider the day wasted it was not. For the bible says;
I perceived that there is nothing better for them than to be joyful and to do good as long as they live; also that everyone should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil - this is God's gift to man. Ecclesiastes 3:12-13God gives us good things and we are to enjoy them. Today I was blessed with the gift of 'good' friends and I thank God for them. Amen.
