"Crossroads" of Life

We live amidst a diverse group of people. I love visiting our favorite Richmond coffee shop (Crossroads Coffee and Ice Cream) for this reason. I love and cherish the environment. Today, I share a few thoughts from my last visit.

All singing songs from every avenue and venue.

The music and melodies of each soul pierce my heart.

Colors of the rainbow abound.

The music plays echoing the the hearts of many.

I in my sweatshirt...he in his jeans.

Dappled diamonds daze the crowd. Who are we?

From the rising of the sun til the setting of the ultimate day when we all dance together on the streets of gold.

Magic plays on the hearts as the coat of many colors is woven at the "Crossroads" of life.

Today, I am thankful for the diversity of friends GOD has placed in my life. I praise GOD for HIS giving me the blessing of many. May GOD bless each of you as you reach out to those around you, embracing and enjoying your differences.

Blessed to be me,

This is beautiful and speaks to me today of appreciating the differences of people around me. After all, as you wrote we will be dancing on streets of gold together one day; we better learn how to accept each other here! I'm encouraged, my precious friend.

Dear one, you didn't even have to tell me how much more prayer you needed today for those awful allergies. God impressed I should pray longer for your health so I did. It's nice to know, though, what you are praying for!!!!! May your breathing clear and those nasty allergies bow to the name of Jesus.

Love you,

Ice cream shops sound sooo good with hot days like now. ;)

I'm blessed by your friendship and looking forward to having ice cream with you that "never melt" as we stroll on those streets of gold! Glory to God! Take care sis Andrea. I've seen your comment at sister Mary's so I prayed for your allergies. Me, sinuses feel heavy but thank God, my allergy is not as bad as it used to be. May the Lord heal us! God bless. Love you in Christ!

Dearest Andrea,

This was absolutely beautiful. I, too, am so blessed by the friendships that we all have made in this life time and here through our sites. So many different people, but all with the same Ultimate Divine Almighty Father. Every single word I pondered on as I read and I thanked Him for you for the music and the melody of your soul that continually pierces my heart with such love and beauty.

Thank you my sweet friend for such refreshment today and every day.

I saw your comment on Mary's site. I'm praying for you as well dear sister.

Love you,

As a fellow writer I was intrigued by your blog title! God is rising many to embrace their writing skills on the internet.

What a lovely phrase this was :

"I in my sweatshirt...he in his jeans.
Dappled diamonds daze the crowd. Who are we?"

Thank you for following my blog. I gladly did the same for you!

Andrea I too am enjoying life with a diverse group of friends who all bring joy to my heart. I am praying for your allergies. I woke up today with an awful headache and I know it is from allergies also. Thanks for being a blogging friend.

Beautiful expression of God's grace in your life. Diversification is something I've always embraced as evident in the beautiful friendships I have and the people I'm honored to minister to.

I was deeply moved by the visual display I could take from your sharing.

Love ya.
