|Random front door from Google Images|
This happened on two different occasions, with two different friends who I hadn't seen in quite a while. I was greeted by both with joy and kindness. They invited me in, and listened to me, and were sympathetic and kind. Not only that, but they talked to me, and made me feel like my visit was really important to them, and that they were so thankful I had come. At this particular time I had such a hard time feeling useful, and these nice ladies helped me feel important to them. I visited with them as often as I could after that, and this was very, very helpful to me.
I really feel like the thought to knock on their doors was a tender mercy from a loving Heavenly Father. He knew that I needed the people behind those doors, and it is even possible that they needed me too. They continue to be good friends whose examples of love and kindness I hope to follow if someone should ever feel prompted to knock on my door.
