Today I spent a good amount of time at a coffee shop talking to a friend. We are doing the same devotional, so we meet once a week and talk about what we thought about the week’s entries and what we are learning from it. We also just chat; about our days, our travels, our families, politics (though we try to keep that short), and life in general. It has been a wonderful way to foster a deeper friendship. We share our heartaches and struggles and celebrate each other’s victories. We console, advise, pray for, and listen. We laugh, share, praise, and give. Our time together brings me true joy.
Today’s joy is the joy of coffee talk.
