Thankful Thursday!

Ecclesiastes 4 :9-11

Two are better than one,

because they have a good return for their work:

If one falls down, his friend can help him up.

But pity the man who falls and has

no one to help him up!

Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.

But how can one keep warm alone?

Today Iris' theme is special friendships! I have wonderful friends at church who I love as sisters in Christ! Since I don't have close relationships with most of my blood sisters, they are OH so special to me! But my first thoughts went to women I have known most of my life and who have been there through many stages and trials with me. These women stood up for me at our wedding! It never dawned on me to have anyone else! We don't see each other much anymore, because we are all so busy, but that bond of love in Christ keeps us close! We can always pick up right where we left off! The great thing is one of them is on Facebook so we can keep in touch the techy way! Those friends are Jamie and Brenda, Janet and my sister Kam! At our wedding they walked down the isle to "Friends are friends forever". It is so true! The bond we have is a heavenly bond, that transcends this earth!

So in tribute to all my friend from my church family, bloggy land, and extended life! I give thanks to God for all of you! You are precious to me and have blessed my life in more ways then I can say!

I Love you ALL!

So glad you have great friends. I also have "sisters" in the Lord who are close by and often much closer than flesh and blood sisters. I'm so thankful for the family of GOd.

Brenda said...

I am so thankful that you're one of my "forever friends."

I love you, Kim.
