Better Homes and Gardens recommends filling your garden with tantalizing flora and fauna. Besides the spectacular view, they say you’ll attract the birds and bees to your yard and have a summer filled with VIP Nat Geo Wild shows. I’ve had this kind of garden in the past. One year, we planted the whole back side of my fence with sunflowers. It was spectacular! Even the squirrels thought so.
“A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” Proverbs 18:24
You could say we put out the invite to be friendly!
We can do this in our lives too. A friend isn’t one who’ll judge the state of your home, or criticize you for the load of laundry or taxes still in a pile near your couch, they are the ones who love YOU! So put out the welcome mat and invite a friend to tea/coffee or lunch. I dare you to see what happens.
Keep in mind that God knows everything and everyone. He knows who will most be blessed and most bless you. Ask Him who you should invite. You never know, you might make a new friend.
God bless you today!
