Proverbs 27:17 As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.
Philippians 2:2 Complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.
I am now 3 days removed from the retreat I attended and I realize now the importance of fellowship. During this retreat I found my laugh. I didn’t even realize it was missing. Yet there I was, in the middle of a full belly laugh, with tears coming to my eyes, laughing with complete abandon, and I realized… it had been years since I had laughed like that. The fellowship of those women is what helped me find my laugh again.
If you are anything like me, when the world gets you down, you hide away and isolate. That is the way I handle myself when I am down, or sad, or frustrated. What this retreat with those women taught me is to stop isolating myself. During hard times is exactly when I need to reach out or simply be involved with other women. We are all there to be strength for one another when times are hard.
What about you? What is the first thing you do when you are sad? Or depressed?
Day 73 and I am feeling weary of beans and rice. Haha.
I finally got some Kombucha, though, and I am a fan! I drank a cranberry one, and the green one is there for tomorrow. I’m pretty sure the green one will not be pleasant, but it definitely helps my belly.
I remade the brussels sprouts and green beans since I burned yesterday’s batch. This batch turned out perfect! Oh, and I learned something new. I have been saying Brussels Sprouts all wrong. I had no idea there was an “s” on the end of brussel. I had always said Brussel Sprouts and discovered just yesterday the correct way is Brussels Sprouts. I guess you really do learn something new each day.
Anyway, I hope you had a wonderful day… until tomorrow, this is day 73 proving you can still teach and old dog new tricks.
