Recently Rebecca had the privilege of playing tour guide for her two best friends visiting from California for 9 days. I also had the awesome opportunity to get better acquainted with these lovely Christian women. God has blessed my daughter with awesome friend relationships and for this I am so grateful to Him! (As an army wife friendships play a vital role in your "sanity" when husbands are deployed.) As I watched these ladies interact I was reminded of the special gift God gives each of us in friends and how often we take them for granted.
Solomon wrote about friends in several proverbs: Pro. 17:17 (A friend loves at all times), Pro. 18:24 (..there is a friend that sticks closer than a brother.), Pro. 27:10 (Do not forsake your friends..)
God has blessed me with rich friendships throughout the world and I pray I will never "forsake" them but continually nurture the relationships and lift them up in prayer as God lays them and their needs on my heart. So for those of you reading this blog, thank-you for being my friend and may God richly bless you as you serve Him. Today, thank God for friends!
These three brothers are becoming "fast" friends!
