Welcome Friends

I woke to a knock on my door
Two virtual strangers stood there
Unexpected guests
Asking to come in

My house was a mess
But I opened the door
"Please come in"

I led them to the kitchen
Where they joined me at the table
They spoke to me kindly
And instantly I was at peace

We sat for quite awhile
and spoke freely
of hopes and dreams
And before long
These strangers became friends

As they were leaving
I thanked them for stopping by
And told them how their visit
Boosted my spirit
In ways
I never could have imagined

They promised me they'd be back
And that next time
...they'd bring friends

I assured them
there would always be room
at the table

I watched my new friends
As they headed off down the road

When they were finally out of sight
I closed the door
And stood there with a tear in my eye
And a smile on my face

Humbled
Blessed
Ever amazed

...By the way
You answer prayers



Today I Pray...

...with a grateful heart

For Christie and Lorraine at The BlogRollers...

Thank you for knocking at the door
...and asking me to be your featured blogger today
...then coming back and bringing your friends

For new friends...

...Thanks for stopping by
Take some time
Explore
Seek some inspiration of your own
And please, come back and visit again

For my old friends who keep coming back
...and showing your support

Thank you for being here
through all my ups and downs
It's an amazing journey that I'm on
and I'm blessed that you're walking it with me

And above everything today...

...I turn my gaze to the heavens
Humbled, blessed, ever-amazed...

...I've been asking,
and today You answered loud and clear.
