Everyone has friends or at least everyone should have friends. When I was younger and in my twenties I had a friend that baked me a birthday cake each year. And every year I missed the message God of the Universe was sending because of emotional pain. I’d been through so much mentally. My existence wasn’t important, at least to me. Yet, to this friend and to God, I was a diamond in the rough. She, like God, saw through my pain. Her kindness displayed that I was worthy to be loved. My friend is now off and living her best life. It’s been years since we’ve gone to lunch or even talked. She’s extremely occupied with traveling, family and running the family business.
My life was changed with riches of the heart because of birthday cakes! Let’s pray!
God of the Universe, today and everyday I visit with you. I tell you my sorrows, my joys and about the pain of others. As I remember to thank you for your many blessings. Today, I thank my friends and I thank you for the gift of friendship. Each has played important roles in my life. Wherever they are I pray your favor over them and those they love. I continue to ask for your favor upon me and my family and our descendants. Amen
