So happy to have you here!

Today's focus is on friendship and I am so blessed to have many God-given friends in my life.
I hope you do too!
I remember going on a mission trip [way out West] when we were young and without children... we were the youngest on this trip and the "older" women
[probably younger than I am now - ha!]
were talking about having good [women] friends in our lives.
I admitted I didn't have any close friends in the city where we lived
[we'd moved for my husband to attend college.]
And they immediately prayed for me - [I can feel the Spirit as I write this]
and asked the Lord to give me some good close women friends.
And He blessed me with that request.
Since that day, I haven't been afraid to make that same request over and over again
as we moved from place to place.
And God blesses.
Right now I'm praying for those who read this and asking our Lord to bless you with good, strong, trustworthy friends like these pictured in my layout - good friends for over twenty years - friends we can share our hearts and hurts with;
friends who pick each other up when we fall.
Here's the next link on the blog hop
