I have so many friends! Too many to even begin to count. I am so thankful for each and everyone of them. They are all so unique. Each one touches my life in a special way. But, my best friends are who I call my "sister friends" These friends lift me up. These friends are strong in their faith. These blessed women are so strong, yet have hearts so tender.
Friends are wonderful. But sister friends are a blessing! One of my sister friends teaches with me. She is such a sweet spirit. We have morning devotionals, listen to K-Lov together, and share joys and pains, hopes and fears.
Another sister friend has had a really trying year. Illnesses, job changes, and unexpected "life moments" have tested her strength, but God has been faithful. Because, she has taken a licking and has kept on ticking! Even in such turmoil, she still makes me laugh! She still has joy in her heart. And she is indeed stronger than she ever thought possible.
In times of joy and sorrow, my sister friends are there. It never fails, when I need a hug or a word of encouragement, I can count on a sister friend to lighten my day. I am so blessed to have such strong faithful women friends in my life. If you have "sister friends" you are truly blessed.... "Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work. If one falls down a friend can help him up, but pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up. " Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 NIV
