Sitting with a Friend

Today I sat with a friend.  It was only thirty minutes, but it was the best thirty minutes I spent today.  Have you guessed it yet?  Yes, I spent some time with Jesus! 

While sitting there I started to think about why don't I do this more?  I always plan to and love to, but often I tell myself, I don't have time to pray today.  How many times do we fall into that trap?  I have to costantly remind myself, I don't have time NOT to pray.  Juggling a job, being a wife and mother and trying to give time to my church sometimes can be just too much and often something gets lost.  I need to work harder at not lettling me get lost.  When I don't take time to spend that time with my Friend, I lose. 

Let's all make a committment to take some time each day with our Friend.  He is waiting!
