Welcome Dear Friends!

I am honored that you stopped by! I pray you will be encouraged and blessed. I believe when we share our heartaches and victories, our faith is strengthened. Knowing God is with us, and our steps are ordered by Him, gives us hope for the future!

Real Friends!


Proverbs 18:23-24 (New Living Translation)

23 The poor plead for mercy;
the rich answer with insults.

24 There are “friends” who destroy each other,
but a real friend sticks closer than a brother.

We love company! Sharing food and time of fellowship is wonderful. Our friends that we have known for many years visited with us last night. After meatloaf, beans and cornbread (and way to much strawberry shortcake) we settled in to share what was going on with each of us. Genuine concern and laughter goes a long way into relaxing and enjoying each other. Taking the time as people used to as they say “in the good old days”. We always had folks dropping by, people didn’t call, they just showed up at your front door. I loved it, it was always a surprise. We did a lot of visiting to. My parents were well known and respected in our community, and of course there was children everywhere for us to play with. Now it seems like no one has time to visit anymore, what a shame. To have friends and be a friend we must take the time to care about people. We never know when we need or someone else needs that “friend that sticks closer than a brother. It is truly a blessing to have friends. If it has been awhile since you have talked to that person you used to spend time with, or maybe they have a need and you could encourage them, please take time this week to call or drop a note. Let them know you not only care, but you love them and prayers are being sent to the throne room of heaven for them. They can’t know how you feel unless you tell them. Have a Blessed Day!

Hi Shirley,
I'm so glad you found me! It's always a treat to find another sister in the Lord through blogging. I started my blog in October and I'm still working out all the kinks. There are many things I would love to add but I don't know how to go about it. I guess I'll figure it out as I go along.
Thank you for sharing scripture and your lovely photos. And in case I haven't told you already, it's very nice to 'meet' you. Have a wonderful day. *smile*

Blessings,
Sandi
