One not-so-random act of kindness

I thought today… in a sort of jumping in with Lisa Jo at — considering her one word prompt of thank you–  I’d re-share one of my         thank you stories for those God writes into our lives as living letters. Though not specifically for today’s five minutes, it is a briefly written piece on theme…  🙂


In my mind, I see her laughing eyes, hear her                                somehow-always-breathless voice bubbling over,                             remember how we used to bump into each other on campus…       stop and share helloes and hearts between classes.  How we first became friends in a group of kids who often met to sing and pray… sunlight dancing warm, stained-glass color patterns all around us… all of us sitting informally on the chapel floor, lifting up  each others’ needs.  It was a time set apart…still in school, on the verge of our adult lives. A season for quickening, deep friendships.  Bonds to last a lifetime…

    What an incredibly sweet description of friendship! I am so thankful for my college friends who continue to be life long friends- such a blessing!

    There are friends, and then there are FRIENDS–the kind who always put you first in ways large and small. It’s often those little things, though, like sugar-cookie kindnesses that we remember the most. I thank Sharon, too, because you are living her legacy on this blog every time you write. Happy Thanksgiving, Pam.

    • Thank you, Lynn, a beautiful comment…. Yes, she is one of four special college FRIENDS.. 🙂 She didn’t remember this day of course, but it has always been “bookmarked” in my memories of those days because, I think, we are always in need of those unexpected, everyday sugar-cookie kindnesses that say, “I’m thinking of you…” Snow flurries here today already have me dreaming of Christmas, but Thanksgiving is still warming!

  4. May we treasure those people whom God brings into our lives for a season and knits our hearts together.

    The best kind ever friendship…. sharing life, sharing love, and sharing concerns. Meeting and lifting each other to His throne.

    Beautiful times to remember by. A perfect way to grow in….. and around, being with those kinds of friendship, with God at its center.
