A little over a year and a half ago, I became friends with a woman that had just moved into the area from Georgia. We got to know each other and found that we had a lot in common. We have attended church and various Bible studies together. She watched my boys so my husband and I could go away for our 20th anniversary. For quite a while now we also have been walking once a week for exercise. We catch up with each other with what has gone on in our lives the past week, share prayer requests and pray together. Our time together has been sweet and precious.
Due to various circumstances it is looking likely that she and her husband will be moving back to Georgia in the very near future. This saddens my heart. I realize how precious the time is that we have with people. We never know how long or short our time will be together. I feel that God is telling me the importance of making the most of every opportunity.
Perhaps there is something that you have been dragging your heels about doing, or you haven't let someone you love know how much you appreciate them. Don't let the day go by without doing the things that you feel God is calling you to do. Be faithful to His desires for your life.
