The Fragrance of Friendship

I enjoyed a sweet time of  fellowship in my home last night celebrating a dear friend’s birthday.

There was interesting conversation, uplifting encouragement, along with many laughs and stories shared. I thoroughly enjoyed sitting in the moment with them — blessed by each of their insights.

Everyone needs good friends, and I’m so blessed to have these women, as well as others, in my life who love me, encourage me, challenge me, and most of all, pray for me. I have to believe that when believing women bind together in prayer, a special bond of strength is formed like none other.

When these women left my home last night, they left the beautiful fragrance of their friendship behind. It’s still lingering in my heart tonight as I write this.

“Our lives are a Christ-like fragrance rising up to God.” (2 Corinthians 2:15) NLT

Friendship — such a sweet gift — to give and to receive.

What makes a friendship special to you?

With my whole heart,
