I just had to share a really bright spot in my day. We have an amazing family in our church. We started out being friends with the son who is also one of our worship pastors. One of the nicest guys you could ever meet. He choose for himself one of the sweetest women you could ever meet. They are quite the pair. Steadfast friends that are like family. Since meeting them Our friends parents have moved to our town and we have had the privilege of getting to know them as well, and you can see that the apple doesn't fall very far from the tree. This is good fruit!
They are amazing servants for Jesus! They have faithfully been prayer partners with us through our journey and never cease to have a word of encouragement to share. I feel like they have in fact adopted our family in some ways and I just love them to pieces.
This afternoon while my girls were snoozing I had some time to be with Jesus and read a book. Unexpectedly the door bell rang and I opened it to find my friends there with a beautiful flower arrangement in one of my favorite colors. The card enclosed said:
"God is in control - We love all of you."
What a beautiful lift to my day. I felt so loved. Looking at these flowers will be a sweet reminder of the hands of God in my life.
Thank you dear friends. I love you back!
