Life Right Now {#59}


She appeared in my open doorway suddenly, and was gone almost before I could process her presence.

Here, she said, setting a container of gum and a miniature card on my desk.

You’re wonderful, she said, disappearing back into the hallway.

And I open the note, still a little mystified, and I read the encouraging, kinds words in her flowing cursive.

And friendship is such a blessed circle, because sometimes I’m the one whispering encouragement, sitting in the back of class, talking about worries, doubts, stress.

But then other times, I’ve a note on my desk and my favorite gum besides, and it’s a wonder how much God provides,

how much He cares.
