Counting it All Joy for Girlfriends!
It's Wednesday and time to reflect on the joy of the Lord and all the blessings He gives! I'm counting it all joy today for women friendships. Here are some facts from a lecture at Stanford: "One of the best things that a man could do for his health is to be married to a woman whereas for a woman, one of the best things she could do for her health is to nurture her relationships with her girlfriends. We women share from our souls with our sisters, and evidently that is very good for our health. Failure to create and maintain quality personal relationships with other humans is as dangerous to our physical health as smoking! So every time you hang out and schmooze with a gal pal, just pat yourself on the back and congratulate yourself for doing something good for your health!"
Last Friday night, the men were gone in our Life Group and we proclaimed it a "girlfriend night." We got in the Word together and reminded each other of God's extravagant love. We prayed together, ate pizza, wings and raw veggies together and even walked the dog together! I cherish these women. We even got silly together!
Help one another, is part of the religion of sisterhood. ~Louisa May Alcott
