In Other Words Tuesday


“The Christian life is a pilgrimage. At times the road is difficult and we get lonely. Sometimes we may get discouraged and consider abandoning the journey. It is at such times that God will place a friend alongside us. One of God’s most precious gifts to us is friends who encourage us and lovingly challenge us to ‘keep going.’ "
~By Henry T. Blackaby & Richard Blackaby ~
from their devotional book, Experiencing God : God gives us precious heart gifts wrapped up in pure love, they are known as friends. I am so honored by the friendships in my life, I truly treasure all of them. My bloggy friends are so important to me, I love them all. They pray for me, encourage me, and love me just as I am. I praise God for all of them. My heart is always open to make new friends. We all need each other, no one should ever be alone. If I can ever pray for you, or encourage you in anyway, please just let me know. God and I love you, never forget that. Be blessed.

You are an encouragement every morning Sis. I trust your having a beautiful morning.
Be blessed and have joy!
The kids are still asleep. I am having some asthma this morning so am a bit tired after waking short of breath. I was at two homes with cats yesterday and our lawn has turned to seed. Beloved needs to mow for I am very allergic to the grass. I am thinking of getting a few chickens for eggs for the family. I will be researching more about it.
