Lysa TerKerust reminds us about the nurturing role of friendships in our lives.

I was talking to my friend, the Gourmet Chef, today. I call her that because she’s always making something wonderful!  Two weeks ago it was Baklava. Last week, chocolate covered cherries. I thought those were only made in factories!  And, today, she was making something fancy with molasses. I said, “Oh yeah, I've got a tube of that!” 

Obviously, my talents lie outside the kitchen. Sometimes I feel inadequate when I struggle in an area where others are gifted.  But I've learned to stop beating myself up!  I get advice from those who naturally excel in areas where I don’t.  And, when I discover something I’m good at, I can help someone else.  Isn't that the beauty of friendship?  My friend, the Gourmet, often asks for my help with public speaking. And she’s taught me that Molasses comes in a jar and there are some yummy things that can be made with it.
