I have some awesome friends. They are always giving little gifts to others — and usually they play down the importance/value/significance of the gift. “Oh, it’s just a little thing.” But it’s not really little for someone to spend time (which is a very finite resource) finding or creating something to give you, is it? For those minutes or hours, that person is thinking about you — maybe even praying for you. I have been the recipient of several loving gifts this week, all different, but all serving to remind me that God in His goodness has a plan for my life, that He will provide, that He HAS provided these friends to help and support me — us — in good times and bad. I pray He will grant me the ability to be as good a friend as those He has given to me.
