My Friends Smell Good

Yeah, I thought that title would catch your attention.

2 Corinthians 2:15
For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. 
About once a quarter I get together with some of my girlfriends for dinner and prayer. It's difficult to find words to explain how wonderful a time is it with those dear women. The freshness of our Lord surrounds us. If you could peer into the spiritual realm, I'm sure it would be beautiful. In my imagination we all sparkle like super novas in a galaxy, fragrant with the scent of everlasting life. 

We eat.

We laugh.

We pray.

We cry.

We pray. 

We met again last week, and this time we shared communion. How special.

My family jokes about my "prayer dinners" because it's not uncommon for me to be out until 2:00 a.m. on prayer nights. And believe me, that's late for me. 

Thank God for friends, laughter and prayer.

There is no substitute for a group of women you can be real with.

What a special group! For all my complaints, sometimes I have to stop and say, this body of Christ is beautiful.

I love the times we have, they anchor my soul with the bonds of love that we have for each other. It was a great night. And we ended it so early! LOL
