Devotional #19

I want to do something a little different for today's devotional. :) I want to dedicate this to all you dear ladies.

I thank my God upon every remembrance of you.

~Philippians 1:3 (NKJV)

I want to say thank you to all of my dear friends from church and to all of the sweet friends I've met through "blog land". Each and every one of you has been a never-ending source of encouragement. If I'm having a hard day, you're always there to step in with a word of comfort and encouragement. I know that you'll always be there for me, no matter what, and for that, I am eternally grateful.

The Lord has truly blessed me in so many many ways through these frienships. To have likeminded friends is such a rich blessing that is so often taken for granted. Each of you encourages me in my walk with the Lord, and urges me to live more and more to the glory of Christ, and Him alone. You are always there to strengthen me when I need it, and to comfort me when I need comfort. Our friendships will last a lifetime! I wanted to let you all know just how thankful I am for you, and just how much our friendship means to me! To all of my church friends: Thank God for you! I have never in my life had friends like you guys! You are continuously living out your faith, and you are all examples for me to follow. The times we have together are SO much fun!! :) And your sweet letters will be treasured forever and ever! You are all so dear to me, and I'm so thankful that the Lord has brought us together, and made us all into a great circle of friends. I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, and I'm looking forward to seeing you all again on Sunday! To all of my blogger friends: Thank God for you as well! "Meeting" all of you likeminded ladies has been such an encouragement to me! Receiving your sweet comments and e-mails has meant the world to me, and they really brighten my day, and leave me with a smile! I really hope to meet you all in person one day!!

Friends, always know that I'm here for you no matter what! I'm just a phone call or e-mail away. If you need some words of encouragement and strength, or if you need prayer, or if you just need someone to talk to, I'm always here! Don't ever forget that!

The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.

~Numbers 6:24-26
Blessings to you always,
