{Heaven ~ Cookies ~ Seaside ~ Sweet T}

Well, this is it. This is the book I was referring to. After a stack of parenting books and
some Francis Chan (my hero), I finally got it started.
I am on Ch 8, and can't encourage you enough to read this.
I may need a few highlighters before I reach the end, but you know how sometimes I refer to people that are "hard to love" or "how we are all God's creation, regardless of what our little pea brains think of them."???
This line struck me:
We need a generation of heavenly minded people who see human beings and the earth itself not simply as they are, but as God intends them to be.
Gotta.Love.That.My. Friends.
Speaking of friends. . ..

I have needed some cheer.
I have felt horrible the last couple of days.
And some of my friends have delivered me some "cheer" right to my doorstep.
Food for My Soul, Mind, and Body. . .
Precious little sandwiches and chocolate chip cookies prepared by
the hands of a precious Christian Woman (movie line, did you catch it?)
I have a special little place in my heart for Seaside, FL.
and my friends have been down this week. . .
They brought me a couple of treasures.
Another dear friend brought me this amazing mug. . .
she said it was for my "Sweet Tea".
My lands, I love these people.
My Sweet Tea will even taste better in my "T Cup".
Friendship is a little slice of Heaven. . .
What does the book say?
There is a chapter devoted to it. . .
Ch 35
Will There be Marriage, Families, and Friendships?
Heaven won't be without families but will be one big family, in which all family members are friends and all friends are family members.
Every time we see someone it will be a family reunion.
Now I don't know about you. . .
but that sounds like Heaven.
