Words like silver

So tonight as I sat here in my jammies, typing away at my computer, trying to learn how to import my old blog, add tags and install widgets, I heard a knock at my door.  My first inclination was to ignore it.  After all, I’m in my jammies!  But the windows are open and I had heard the heels clicking up the sidewalk so I knew the visitor was a female.  Well, whoever she was would just have to be greeted by a pajama wearing, naked faced, messy haired, me.

Let me tell you, I am so glad I opened that door.  One of my dear friends from the East coast stood there looking like she stepped off a magazine cover.  She apologized for dropping in on me unexpectedly, (because obviously I wasn’t expecting visitors) and I invited her in.  We’ve seen each other sans makeup, so I was okay with all this.

We caught up for a bit and then I told her of my new blog and she said she could feel the excitement I had for this adventure!  She began to encourage me about blogging, writing and even offered support since she knows this program so well as it’s all her company uses for publishing.  She also offered some suggestions for my future book and is in a position where she can provide resources.   My friends, this was a God thing.  I just switched to this site today and it’s the one she knows like the back of her hand.

Three hours later, she got up to go and both of us feeling refreshed and encouraged in spirit,  hugged our goodbyes.  Tonight I am thankful for God’s providence and for the wonderful people He places in my life in His perfect timing.  Sometimes an encouraging word is all that is needed to catapult us headlong into our dreams and goals.  Be an encourager, always my friends- Good night, dream of turkey and dressing 😉Image
