Giving in Friendship!

I have had friends old and new, some family too, over the last few weeks, helping me to remain focused on Christ.  Reminding me to keep my eyes on my Heavenly Father!  Reminding me that beyond the clouds and the rain, shines the sun!


These precious friends have:
  • tickled my funny bone, until I laughed
  • NOT LEFT ME ALONE in my pity party place
  • prayed for me and sent me messages
  • sent me scriptures to hold on to
  • one precious friend even sent me a beautiful gift
All I can say is THANK YOU, Thank you, Thank you!!!

Many of you have encouraged me when you yourselves have been in need of encouragement.  How awesome and such a great lesson for me.   I hope I am able to encourage you as you have encouraged me.  I pray the Lord's abundant blessings on you all.  Your friendship is a great reminder to me of how great is God's love for me that He has placed you in my life.  And a reminder I hope for you, how precious you are to Him when you reflect on your friends, old, new, near far, seen and unseen!

Your friendship is a gift to me

You are awesome examples of giving, giving of yourselves generously.

2 Corin 9 v 6:  But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.

Ladies, you will reap bountifully

God bless
Tracy
