As we pray for our “ones” and look for ways to leverage Thanksgiving, a simple way to keep cultivating your relationship with those people is to send a brief text showing gratitude for them and your friendship. Here’s an example of a text I sent to a friend today:
“Hey (name), as we approach Thanksgiving, I just want you to know I thank the Lord for our friendship and I’m grateful for the conversations and hang outs that we have had. May you and your family feel God‘s presence and peace and joy in this season! I look forward to connecting again soon. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!”
I encourage you to pause and send a little note or test to your one (or ones), along with pausing and praying for them. May God use your love and friendship to draw them to Christ!
