Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power – “How are You?”

Welcome to Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power! I’m so glad you could be here. For the last couple of days, we’ve been talking about Balance of the Mind, Body & Soul and we’ll be coming back to that on Monday.

Today I wanted to share with you some simple but powerful words I received in a card from one of my book team members just the other day. I’m smiling as I think back to our conversation. She had asked me how I was doing and transparent me said, “Do you really want to know?” She laughed and said, “Yeah, I do.” And you know what? She really did want to know what was on my mind and in my heart!

Sometimes I know I can be too literal, but just those moments she gave me to truly listen really helped. She didn’t merely gloss over her “How are you?” question with her next thought like I know I can tend to do. The next time I ask somebody “How are you?” I am inspired to be prepared to listen because I never know when I’m going to desire the same courtesy.

So I say a big “Thank you; Thanking God for you” to my sweet sister. She knows who she is. She then followed up with a beautiful colorful card with a heartfelt message that I would like to leave you with. I’ll rephrase the wording to include all of you. These words were taken from a “Prayerworks” greeting card.

Lord, help them make a little time,

A few quiet moments to clear their mind

To catch their breath enough to say

“Lord, help me make it through this day.”

Father, fill them with Your empowering grace

To handle each day’s hectic pace

Their peace and strength, restore again

In Jesus’ precious name, Amen!

In the midst of life’s demands, may you find refreshment from HIS hands!

Be refreshed!

Have an awesome weekend…
