    "Here we go round the mulberry bush… pop goes the weasel!"
     
    "Did I really just sing that? WHERE did I pick it up from?" I asked my husband, laughing. It just seemed to suddenly be stuck in my mind.  Retracing my steps, I quickly realized that one of our little girls had been singing it as I passed by her on my way downstairs. Now without even realizing it, I had picked it up and had started singing too.
     
    As I thought about this, I realized that people can stay in my mind in a similar way. After spending time with certain friends, I'm left with specific ideas and feelings still replaying in my thoughts. With my dearest friends, topics such as following the Lord, loving our families, and seeking to bring the wisdom of God's Word into our everyday circumstances flow in and out of our conversations to the extent that they remain with me throughout the day. I leave these friends feeling renewed and refocused.
     
    Do you have a friend like this? If so, you are blessed! Prioritize time with these friends and take the time to tell them how much they mean to you and how you value their presence in your life.
     
    Are you a friend like that to others? If not, a great way to begin is by looking for friends who share your values for loving God and loving others. People with these values often gravitate toward God's Word and serving others -- so try looking for them in church Bible studies and ministries. Then look for ways to spend time together so you begin to know, enjoy, and encourage each other.
