Well another day of reflection and thanks! Thanks to those who love me, remember me and embrace me even when I might not always embrace them! We get so caught up with doing our own things that we miss people around us. Today I was at a doctors appointment. Just focusing on the task at hand when a woman I have known for most of my life approached and said “Mindy?” “How are you?” Stopping herself to question herself I think a bit. I had been there and had not even noticed her. The man who took care of me I knew too! Both of these folks recognized me and yet I failed to even notice them!
We get so caught up that we fail to see what is around us. I was glad that my blood pressure was good and that I got a good report. I had been a bit put out by this day and the cost of going! I got home this evening and it dawned on me how we all change.
God places people where we need one another. I really believe this. I have been looking at what is my calling or gifts that God needs me to use for him. I know that he has given me the gift of employing people and helping those out of work gain employment. I know that God has given me the gift of assurance to those who might not see their talents! I know the Lord has given the gift or words. I have always been able to bring people together thru words and get people to understand what is needed to solve issues.
I am an encourager of others. My Spiritual gift is to serve God’s people as written in Corinthians 12:7 ” A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other.
Even when you think no one will know you, God apears with a person to encourage. Today I was blessed by two of God’s gifts that happend to find me in a doctors office! Both of these folks left me feeling so much better because they used their God given gifts and bestowed them on me!
Truly Thankful for the gift of friendship-
